Diversity Matters

31 July 2020

An independent, strong, diverse and effective legal profession – if at first you don’t succeed, try try again, but how many chances do we need?

We recently wrote about the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) initiatives in promoting a good working culture within law firms, and explained why one of the key responsibilities of any employer is to create both a diverse and an inclusive workplace.

The problems with race in UK policing: Part 2

Is a lack of diversity really that important? Does it matter whether an officer is White or Black when their job is to impartially enforce the law and protect the public?

The problems with race in UK policing: Part 1

The killing of George Floyd on 25 May 2020 by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who knelt on Mr. Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, has been rightly met with widespread anger and condemnation. People have taken to the streets for rallies in support of the Black Lives Matter (‘BLM’) movement in the USA, the UK and around the world. Demonstrating exactly why people of Black heritage are entirely justified if they ever feel unsafe in the UK today is the fact that Parliament’s first response to the BLM protests was to draft a bill that protects its statues, not its citizens.

COVID-19 only highlighted the racial inequality within the healthcare setting which has put BAME patients disproportionately at risk for years

Recent events around the globe have made the reality of racial inequality in society feature at the forefront of media coverage, political discussion and social consciousness, but the effect of this inequality has been felt by those in the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community long before this.  It has become clear that there is a lot of work to be done to address these inequalities in every aspect of society and COVID-19 has demonstrated that significant progress must be made in the healthcare sector to protect patients and healthcare workers from a BAME background.
