  • demonstrate excellence in leading, managing and working with diversity both internally and externally.
  • ensure our people are engaged and accountable at all levels in achieving our vision on diversity and inclusion.
  • provide an equally positive experience for all our people wherever they are based.
  • continue to foster an inclusive environment where all are able to flourish, regardless of background, age, race or gender.

Our clients

We will:

  • ensure that we work with our client base meeting their expectations on diversity.
  • understand that diversity is welcomed as an opportunity and a differentiator by our clients.
  • enter into new markets and increase our share of existing ones.

Our community

We will:

  • work with our suppliers of products and services to help them understand and become familiar with diversity and inclusion at Eversheds Sutherland and where appropriate measure and assess their commitment.
  • provide accommodation that is accessible to all and offers privacy for those who wish to observe their faith.
  • consider the appropriate provision of food, drink and entertainment.
  • aim to reflect the diversity of our local communities.
