firmsOver the past few weeks, there has been an argument as to whether the ‘Stand Up, Speak Out’ campaign to kick racism out of football is ‘just for PR’. Might the same criticism be made of law firms’ attitude to increasing ethnic diversity in the profession? Do we think it is enough just to wear black and white wristbands?

No, we do not. Even if you set aside the strong moral arguments for every organisation to offer fair and equal treatment to all, and ignore the fact that a more diverse group of colleagues is stimulating and enjoyable, there is a business imperative for law firms to take diversity seriously.
