Pinsent Masons hosts 'Diversity Day'

30 Jan 2014 | 08:48 am | 1 min. read

International law firm Pinsent Masons is hosting a 'Diversity Day' today to raise awareness of the issue across the firm's offices.

The centrepiece of the day will be a speech by Diane Abbott, The MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington and former Labour leadership contender, who was also the first black woman to be elected to the House of Commons. She will address staff in the firm's London headquarters in a session that will also be broadcast throughout the firm's UK offices.

In addition there will be a series of workshops throughout the Pinsent Masons network raising awareness of the work of the firm's Black and Ethnic Minority, Multi-Faith, Disability, LGBT and Female Futures network groups which are responsible for leading various diversity initiatives in conjunction with the firm's clients, peers and wider business community.

Kate Fergusson, CR Programme Manager at Pinsent Masons, says:

"Whilst diversity day is an opportunity to reflect on our progress, and plan for the future, it is only a small part of on an ongoing programme of activity which includes social events, seminars, training and volunteering.  Diversity and inclusion is no longer an 'add on' or a 'box to tick' for law firms.  In 2014, creating an inclusive working environment is a key element in our wider commitment to doing business responsibly and allows us to benefit from a diverse workforce, access the best talent, and generate innovative new ideas."
