International law firm DAC Beachcroft is pleased to announce that it has joined NOTICED, the UK’s first inter-firm diversity network aimed at promoting networking opportunities to integrate, celebrate and educate on diversity across the legal sector.
DAC Beachcroft is one of 22 member firms which have joined forces to provide opportunities to individuals to interact on a social and professional level. The network also focuses on celebrating successes and bringing people together to discuss issues on culture and initiate action for change.
“We are very pleased to join likeminded firms in promoting diversity across the legal sector,” said Sue Jenkins, DACB’s Talent Partner. “At DACB our purpose is to help our colleagues and our clients succeed, creating sustainable value. One of the ways we do this is by striving to eradicate obstacles, actual or perceived, that exist to equality of opportunity. To attract the best talent, foster innovation and meet the needs of our clients, we must seek out and include a plethora of voices, views and experiences. Our involvement in networks like NOTICED is yet another way we can help break down barriers.”
DACB has its own internal network, ACCESS, which aims to promote diversity within the firm and support the increased representation of BAME colleagues, both current and future. ACCESS, along with DACB’s other networks and the firm’s work with the Social Mobility Foundation and Aspiring Solicitors, supports DACB’s commitment to being an inclusive business, reflecting the diverse communities in which it works, and aiming to be a place where people from all backgrounds can achieve their full potential.
NOTICED is supported by The Law Society of England & Wales and Race for Opportunity. The network has also been appointed as a member of The Law Society’s Ethnic Minority Lawyers Division.
