Hill Dickinson first law firm to receive Investors in Diversity Award

3rd March 2014

Hill Dickinson has become the first law firm to become accredited under the prestigious Investors in Diversity scheme.

Following a two year process, Hill Dickinson has been awarded the highly sought-after Investors in Diversity Award for its commitment to supporting diversity in the workplace, which included the setting up of a 15-strong Diversity Steering Group. With membership from across all tiers of Hill Dickinson's employees including staff from its Sheffield office, the group has implemented a robust framework to enable and communicate the core values of the scheme, including inclusion, mutual respect, and helping people to reach their maximum potential. The award is the first to be issued to a law firm, with other awardees including The Princes Trust, Northern Rail, and Shepherd Construction. Alastair Reid, Head of the Sheffield office, Hill Dickinson said: -It is a great honour to become the first law firm to receive the prestigious Investors in Diversity Award, which is a reflection of our ambition to ensure Hill Dickinson is a place where staff from all backgrounds can flourish in an inclusive and supportive working environment. Inequality within the legal sector is an issue that can no longer be ignored, and it is hoped our participation in Investors in Diversity is the start of greater involvement in this worthy and vital scheme.
