Why should enterprise organisations embrace diversity and inclusion?

There is a significant amount of research which demonstrates that diversity of experience and expertise leads to better business outcomes; increasing diversity in your supply chain positively impacts commercial gains and helps to mitigate risk in your organisation and a legal sector which better reflects the diverse community it serves is more able to uphold the Rule of Law. Despite more women entering the legal profession than men, only 30% of senior positions, including firms’ partners, are made of women. Over 40% of lawyers have primary caring responsibilities for children or adult caring responsibilities and there is a significant under-representation of disabled lawyers (5% only) compared to the UK workforce.
