Diversity and inclusion
Freshfields is committed to being a disability-inclusive employer. We are constantly searching for ways to attract and progress our disabled talent. We also aim to support our colleagues who are affected by disability (such as those with caring responsibilities) and to give all an opportunity to champion disability across the firm.
On the International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2019, the firm was pleased to announce that it joined the Valuable 500, committing at a senior level to disability inclusion globally.
We also partner with Business Disability Forum, who help organisations become disability smart, and are part of their Global Taskforce. We also work with Myplus Consulting who advise on better attracting, retaining and progressing talented disabled graduates.
We bring together disabled colleagues and Champions to be part of our disability network, Freshfields Enabled, with the aim of working together to become a more inclusive workplace.
