Diversity and inclusion
Celebrating our diversity
Embracing diversity strengthens us and inclusivity enables everyone to thrive. But there’s more to do. So we’re listening, learning and taking meaningful action to make a positive difference in our business and our communities.
We’re amplifying the voices of our people and empowering them to fulfill their potential. We do this so we can build the best teams, help our clients succeed, and nurture a culture where everyone feels they belong.
Diversity and inclusion is about each one of us being able to bring our whole selves into every part of our lives. What makes our firm special is that we acknowledge our differences, value and celebrate them. Those differences are our strength and they’re the reason I am proud to call this place home.

Pursuing justice and social change
Around the world, many people and communities face barriers to justice. Through our pro bono work, we help children, asylum seekers, refugees and other under-served groups get the legal support, access to justice and fair treatment they need and deserve.
We also give free advice to nonprofits, UN agencies, intergovernmental organizations and social enterprises. This allows them to focus on their missions and key objectives. And we support social and economic development, sound legal institutions and women's advancement in under-resourced regions.
As a former refugee myself, working in our Pro Bono team has helped me retain my confidence and dignity. I use my lived experience to help other refugees and migrant women adjust to new environments and find new opportunities.
