Making a world of difference

Diversity and inclusion

At Eversheds Sutherland, the case for diversity and inclusion (D&I) is clear, it underpins our values and purpose. We recognize that having diverse talent across our business brings many benefits and that a culture of inclusion, where each person feels able to be their true self at work and reach their full potential is key.

Within Eversheds Sutherland Ireland we have 5 people networks:

  • Pathways
  • Perspective (LGBT+)
  • Verve (Race and Ethnicity)
  • Ability (Wellbeing, Ability and Carers); and
  • Mental Health Nework.

All our networks are open to all our employees and partners, and we encourage allies to get involved.

We have a Diversity & Inclusion Steering Committee which meets monthly to drive our progress, with representation from our D&I sponsor, Mark Varian and other various partner sponsors from our networks.

What diversity means to us

Diversity refers to the similarities and differences that exist between people. This includes race, age, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion as well as social economic background, nationality, marital status and family or care responsibilities.

Valuing diversity means that we value and respect our people, our clients and our community.

Our diversity and equality policy outlines the key principles of the firm to support diversity in the workplace.
