Diversity and inclusion in the legal sector really matters, both for the users of legal services and for everyone working in it. This report provides people with a good overview of best practice and is a helpful contribution to raising awareness and increasing understanding.
To date, this is probably one of the first and certainly a remarkably succinct and informed examination of the various permutations of inclusion and diversity issues. As its general tone is positive, humane and optimistic, it does set out to recommend sensible solutions to diversity problems.
This Special Report explores strategies for maximising inclusion and diversity in the legal profession both in-house and in private practice.
Each of the report's five chapters has been written by an expert with direct experience and knowledge in their specialist field. The areas covered by this Special Report are: disability, female gender issues, social mobility, trans* inclusion and ethnicity issues.
This new report is essential reading for all organisations committed to inclusion and diversity across the modern workplace.
