Sue Jenkins, Talent Partner and Head of Diversity and Inclusion at DAC Beachcroft, comments: "This is a great opportunity for the firm to help shape the legal sector, and to play a key role in promoting diversity and inclusion across the legal profession. One of the four key principles we have built our culture on at DAC Beachcroft is providing a supportive and inclusive place to work, and I am proud that we are so genuinely committed to making a real and sustainable difference within our own business and through collaborating with clients.
Chris White, Founder of Aspiring Solicitors commented: “Aspiring Solicitors is looking forward to assisting DAC Beachcroft to enhance and improve the firm's diversity and inclusion objectives and more importantly its results. We can’t wait to implement some of the agreed strategic plans and proposals we’ve discussed and co-ordinated, and are confident that these will have a positive impact on diversity and inclusion at the firm.”
DAC Beachcroft is committed to promoting an inclusive culture, and does so through a broad range of initiatives such as its Spectrum group for LGBTQ colleagues, Parents & Carers Forum and its Women+ network.
