We believe greater ethnic diversity is required at all levels of the firm.
People from the black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) community are underrepresented in legal and non-legal roles in law firms, particularly in senior or leadership roles. A lack of visible representation can discourage talented people from choosing a certain career path as they see no role models. Supportive and targeted mentoring is important to enable BAME candidates at all levels to realise their full potential.
Our focus is on creating an inclusive environment that supports and develops BAME employees through their careers. We want to attract more people from a BAME background to join Osborne Clarke at all levels with our main initiative being the growth of a pool of talent within our vital graduate roles.
