We are delighted to announce details of our inaugural Chambers Diversity & Inclusion Awards: Europe 2019.

When: Tuesday, 1 October 2019

Where: Amsterdam

The Chambers Diversity & Inclusion Awards celebrate in-house legal teams and law firms who are furthering the advancement of diversity and inclusion across Europe. With clients increasingly demanding to see improvements in inclusion from their law firms, the awards provide an opportunity for both general counsel and law firms to demonstrate the key work and success they are bringing to shifting the inclusion dial. The awards also provide the opportunity to shine the spotlight on role models and trailblazers in pro bono and corporate social responsibility as well as inclusion.

Nominations are now open. You can find more information below.
