Inclusion and Diversity
Our aim is to be recognised as a leading promoter of inclusion and diversity in the legal profession. We believe in a gender balanced, diverse workforce and culture that is inclusive of everyone. We also believe that promoting and strengthening equity, diversity and inclusion allows us to build effective teams for our clients and deliver the highest quality service.
"Diversity" to us means diversity in gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and ability. "Inclusion" to us means inclusion for all. We are committed to promoting a truly diverse workforce and culture, that is inclusive of everyone and gives all our people the opportunity to build and advance their career in a way that is aligned with our core values: balance, respect, loyalty and integrity.
We focus on the following resource streams:
- Gender and Flexibility
- Age and Generation
- People with Disabilities
- Culture and Religion
We believe in acceptance, equality, understanding, respect, human rights and the power of our community.
We are committed to fostering a safe and supportive culture, where Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans or gender diverse and Queer (LGBTQ) employees feel respected, valued and are able to bring their whole selves to work every day. Being able to bring your whole self to work is an important aspect of employee wellbeing, performance, innovation and satisfaction.
We have an established LGBTQ Resource Stream Employee Network who support and promote LGBTQ inclusion within our practice. Our LGBTQ Resource Stream is also made up of Allies who listen, learn and strive to create an inclusive space for everyone at Colin Biggers & Paisley. We are proud of our respectful, inclusive and supportive practice and will continue to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all of our LGBTQ employees.
Our practice acknowledges and supports the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT), Wear it Purple Day, World AIDS Day, along with other key LGBTQ calendar events.
