Achieving a diverse, motivated and inclusive workforce.
At Clyde & Co we view diversity and inclusion as critical to the international nature of our business and have created a working environment where people from different backgrounds can thrive.
The firm wishes to attract, develop and retain a diverse workforce that is fully representative of the communities and rich cultures in which we live and work. This requires us to promote and share an inclusive culture for all our employees, where everyone feels respected and has the opportunity to contribute to the success of the business.
We will work to continuously develop diversity and inclusion competencies, awareness and behaviours which must be built into our leadership, management and working practices, and embraced firm-wide. The global Diversity & Inclusion Group comprises partners and senior managers across the firm. This Group oversees the progress being made on issues such as gender diversity in senior roles, cultural diversity and employee wellbeing.
The firm is a signatory to the UK Law Society' s Diversity and Inclusion Charter and globally many of our offices are members of, or engage with, a number of diversity programmes such as Stonewall, Aspiring Solicitors and The 30% Club. Clyde & Co has also recently introduced the Rare Contextual Recruitment System (CRS) into our graduate recruitment process. The CRS identifies stand out candidates by not only looking at grades, but how those grades compare to a candidate's schooling and background, therefore creating a level playing field and increasing diversity in the legal profession.
