A message from Senior Partner, Kathleen Russ
Acting as a responsible business, which cares deeply about its social impact, is central to who we are as a firm. It is closely aligned with our values and matters hugely to our people.
Over the last few years, we have taken continued action to support our local communities, promote diversity and inclusion in society, use our legal skills to defend the vulnerable and reduce environmental and social risks. I am very proud of the work we have done to date, and immensely heartened by the support that our people across the firm so generously provide to a number of causes. But we are not complacent or claiming to be perfect. Creating positive change is a long-term endeavour and we are committed to it.
With that in mind, we have launched #ChangeThroughAction, a campaign designed to highlight some of the key activities which demonstrate our commitment to build back better and support the wider society.
The campaign is focused on the following key areas: pro bono, corporate social responsibility, diversity and inclusion, environmental and support for our people. At its very heart is our desire to move beyond aspirations and demonstrate that taking action is the only way to effect positive change.
For more information on #ChangeThroughAction and why it is important to us as a firm and individuals, please listen to this podcast that I have recorded with Associate Priya Bansal and CSR & Diversity Director, Chris Edwards.
Hear about some key projects our people are involved with and how these are driving positive change.
