Outstanding employee network award for ethnic diversity

Founded in 2015, Clifford Chance's London REACH Network (our network for race equality and celebrating heritage) won the Outstanding Multi-cultural or BAME Employee Network award at the 2018 UK Diversity Legal Awards. This award recognises the outstanding contribution of a multi-cultural or ethnically diverse employee network in the legal profession to creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace through a series of innovative initiatives including reverse mentoring scheme, bespoke career coaching for members, collaborative events with the LGBT network Arcus. The REACH Network has been effective, visible and influential in developing the firm's diversity and inclusion strategy.
