Diversity & inclusion

Diversity & inclusion at Farrer & Co

Farrer & Co is committed to fostering and promoting diversity & inclusion in relation to our people, clients and the community. We recognise the importance of creating an environment of equality, inclusion and mutual respect, in which people with different views, experiences and backgrounds can fulfil their potential. We believe that every member of our Firm has a responsibility to help promote inclusion, diversity and dignity at work. We are committed to providing those who work here with opportunities to realise their potential regardless of race, sex, age, religion or belief, disability or sexual orientation.

We aim to ensure that all our people are employed, trained, compensated, transferred and/or promoted solely on the strength of their ability, qualifications, experience and merit. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and supportive employer, taking reasonable and practicable steps to accommodate the requirements of people's religions, cultures and domestic responsibilities. We have an exceptionally low staff turnover and are proud that so many of the people who join us remain with us for such a long time.

We monitor diversity through recruitment and workforce statistics in order to ensure that our practices are fair and non-discriminatory. We expect our suppliers to mirror our values in respect of diversity and equality.

What this means for clients is that we are better positioned to continue to provide a first-class service to an increasingly diverse audience.
