GLD has joined over 100 companies from across the UK, Europe and other jurisdictions in signing the General Counsel for Diversity and Inclusion’s (GCDI) statement to support diversity and inclusion not only in GLD but across the legal sector.
GLD is the first government department to sign the statement which has the primary goal to promote greater diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, and encourages all signatories to share best practice on how to achieve a broader, richer environment and identify systemic issues that hinder progress.
As a department GLD is working to keep D&I at the forefront of all we do and in our role in the Civil Service and legal community. The statement represents everything we stand for at GLD and is aligned with our Inclusion for All D&I Strategy 2019-2022.
Our strategy, and desire to lead on promoting D&I in the legal sector, is at the heart of making GLD a brilliant place to work, creating a safe, supportive and inclusive environment where everyone’s talent and contribution is recognised and where we all have a meaningful voice on matters that affect us.
In his video message, GLD Director General and Diversity and Inclusion Champion, Stephen Braviner Roman discusses what this means for GLD.
