Promoting inclusive workplace behaviours

We are committed to creating an inclusive culture and recently rolled out Everyday Inclusion, a firmwide diversity and inclusion programme, enabling our people to feel empowered and equipped to ensure this. 

Created in partnership with a team of psychologists and diversity and inclusion specialists at Half the Sky, Everyday Inclusion coaches people across all levels and areas of the business in what to say and do to “speak up” about non-inclusive behaviours and “call in” the contribution of colleagues who experience them.

Teams across the firm took part in facilitated workshops which were followed up with inclusion clinics to provide an opportunity to share experiences and develop more fluency around inclusion, with the aim of providing everyone with a space to learn and change behaviours when necessary. In total 79% of people across the firm have taken part in the programme.

The session made me think a lot more about the impact your words and actions can have on others. Everyday Inclusion Employee Participant, Slaughter and May
We want to grow as a firm and equip people with the context, knowledge and language to be able to call out non-inclusive behaviour as well as acknowledge and make changes to their behaviour and language when they have been called out. Steve Cooke, Former Senior Partner, Slaughter and May
