Chambers D&I Charter

CHambers D&I Charter


The Chambers D&I Charter encourages law firms and legal departments to partner with Chambers as signatories; share their diversity data to create, embed and action an ongoing diversity plan.

The Charter builds on the findings of the Chambers D&I program and offers signatories a structured approach to addressing the root causes of inequality in the workplace through the bespoke creation of:

•  action plans
•  training
•  toolkits  

Chambers will shortly be launching a dedicated website that will highlight the individuals, companies and firms that support D&I globally as well as providing useful benchmarking and tools that can help make a difference.

We encourage collaboration between companies, external advisers and suppliers who value inclusive workplace environments. This includes but is not limited to; gender, race and ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability, mental health, faith, religion, educational background and socio-economic status.

To become a Chambers D&I Charter Signatory, please access the sign up form. Soon after signing up, signatories will be asked to complete a short questionnaire to enable the building of their dedicated D&I action plan.
