Philip Lee signs Law Society’s Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Charter


Monday, September 7, 2020

We are delighted to be early signatories to the Law Society’s recent Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (GEDI) Charter.  This is very much in keeping with the culture of inclusion that we aspire to as a firm.  The charter signatories will ‘treat all individuals and groups of individuals fairly and equally and no less favourably, specific to their needs, in areas of gender, civil status, family status, sexual orientation, religion, age, race, class, disability or membership of the Traveller Community’.

As per the charter, signatories agree to:

  • Recognise the individual needs of those they employ and support them to develop to their full potential.
  • Ensure equal access to opportunities for those they employ.
  • Ensure their policies, procedures and processes promote gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
  • Carry out their work without bias, in a respectful and non-discriminatory manner.
  • Build awareness and understanding of the benefits of promoting gender equality, diversity and inclusion.

Nicola McKenna, HR Manager, is a key driver behind the diversity and inclusion policies within the firm. She commented, “At Philip Lee, we foster equality, gender balance and inclusivity with real intent. We are pleased to pledge our commitment to this charter which underpins our philosophy of providing an inclusive working environment in which every employee feels valued.”

Further information on the charter can be found here.
