Inclusive Top 50
The rankings are a definitive list of UK organisations that promote inclusion across all protected characteristics throughout each level of employment. They are a dynamic and exclusive resource, identifying employers who lead the way across all strands of diversity – age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith, and religion.
To be considered for the rankings, the firm was required to provide significant evidence of its work in a range of areas, including recruitment procedures, training, workforce data and diversity related initiatives and education.
Blake Morgan is also a signatory of the Business in the Community (BITC) Race at Work Charter, the Social Mobility Pledge, and the Law Society’s Women in Law Pledge. The firm has a committed Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) committee, a newly appointed and dedicated EDI Specialist, and a wealth of resources, including an internal training academy that actively seeks to raise awareness and provide support and guidance to all within the business.
