Diversity & Inclusion
We’re a global firm. Which is one of the reasons why we’re so passionate about diversity and inclusion. We want everyone here to be empowered to thrive. So if you join us, you’ll find there are no barriers to your progression.
Creating a diverse and inclusive working environment, where people from different backgrounds can thrive, is critical to the success of our global business. We are committed to treating everyone equally and with respect. The fact that we’re a global firm makes us even more committed to diversity – we want to be as diverse as the communities in which we work. In recent years, we have made significant progress in this area but there is always more we can do. The firm is a signatory to the UK Law Society' s Diversity and Inclusion Charter and globally many of our offices are members of, or engage with, a number of diversity programmes such as Stonewall, Aspiring Solicitors and The 30% Club. Clyde & Co has also recently introduced the Rare Contextual Recruitment System (CRS) into our graduate recruitment process. The CRS identifies stand out candidates by not only looking at grades, but how those grades compare to a candidate's schooling and background, therefore creating a level playing field and increasing diversity in the legal profession.

Our LGBT+ Network
The Pryde & Co network, is the firm's LGBT+ network and is also open to allies. The network has members from all aspects of the firm (trainees, secretaries, business support staff, partners, etc.). The Pryde network is also affiliated with other LGBT+ networks, such as the LGBT+ Insurance Network. The network has two primary goals. The first goal is to provide a support network within the firm for LGBT+ staff. The second goal of the network is to educate friends and colleagues of the firm about the issues that LGBT+ people face. The network is involved in many aspects of the firm. As mentioned, Pryde & Co acts as a support network for its members, but it also often partners with other networks in the firm, for example it discusses and organises intersectionality events with ACED (Achieving Cultural and Ethnic Diversity), our BAME group. The Pryde network also acts as an advisory group for the firm's UK and Global management team; raises awareness through events, presentations and communications; and collaborates with other LGBT+ networks in the industry.
