InterLawADVANCE

Part of our mission at the InterLaw Diversity Forum is to support diverse talent along the career pipeline. Our research has shown that diverse talent faces increased challenges, and that the 'more boxes you tick' (i.e. intersectionality), the greater those challenges become.

 

To aid the career progression of talent (both lawyers and business services) from all strands of diversity and inclusion (including LGBT+, BAME, Disability, Gender, and social mobility), we will be working with select members and partners who want to reach the broadest applicant pool possible so that they can source the best talent for their organisations.

If your organisation is interested in participating, please contact admin@interlawdiversityforum.org.
