Gender Pay Gap Report
Gender and Ethnicity Pay Gap Report 2023
“Operating in a diverse and inclusive workplace where all our people have the support and opportunity to achieve their full potential is central to the success of our firm. Our D&I strategy guides our approach to achieving a more diverse and inclusive culture for everyone, and we are investing in our D&I capability. We have launched our firmwide D&I pledge, expanded our D&I team, established a network of D&I champions in all offices and re-launched our employee network groups to give better governance, ownership and ability to drive change.
Our Board and our Senior Management Teams are fully committed to driving the change required to ensure we achieve our D&I strategy and that our pay gaps (Gender and Ethnicity) are reduced and, over time, eliminated. This commitment is reflected in our recruitment, promotion, and internal employment processes. We are confident that we pay our people fairly for equivalent roles, regardless of gender, race or ethnic diversity. This year, we have once again gone beyond the statutory gender pay reporting requirements and have voluntarily published our data relating to equity partners and ethnicity pay. This year we saw an increase in the number of female Partners and Board members, a better gender balance in senior roles and an increase in our ethnicity profile from 17.7% – 18.3%. Whilst these changes are as step in the right direction, they don’t immediately impact our pay gaps. We know that it will take time, focus and long-term commitment to eliminate our pay gaps but we are working hard to bring about the change we want to see.”
