Each network offers an informal support

mechanism for employees with similar

backgrounds, outlooks or interests and

hosts a number of events throughout the

year, ranging from inspirational lunchtime

talks to social evenings. These events are

open to everyone and are a great way

to meet new people in the firm while

celebrating difference.

Our aim is to ensure that our talent

remains diverse throughout the pipeline

to partnership. In addition to numerous

training programmes for the professional

and personal development of our people,

we provide targeted opportunities for

female, BAME and LGBT employees,

including mentoring schemes,

development programmes and

coaching sessions.

Additionally, we collaborate with

our European 'Best Friends' to run

a leadership programme for female

associates. The six-day programme is

run across three cities and focusses on

building leadership skills within the

legal sector and relationships across

the firms. We have also worked with our

European 'Best Friends' to develop an

LGBT workplace initiative to share best

practice on progressing LGBT-related

strategies in our respective firms.
