The first UK law firm to gain the Diversity in Business Accreditation (Excellence).
Our Diversity in Business Accreditation (DiBA, now known as the Diversity Development Standard) process involved an audit of the firm’s equality and corporate social responsibility policies, as well as its entire office manual. Simpson Millar had to provide evidence that it supports equality and diversity through all its procurement policies, recruitment procedures, and staff training and development programmes. By way of an example, of the firm’s 31 partners at the time, 17 were women.
As Practice Manager Rachel Windle put it, “Going through the DiBA Accreditation process with EW Group for Simpson Millar has been a valuable and business changing experience. Simply fantastic.”
