The Equality Act 2010 has become the framework for diversity understanding in the workplace. Every employer and organisation is responsible for maintaining a level of good practice; hanging over them is a serious threat of tribunal compensation and other legal expenses. However, far greater benefit can be derived from following an equalities agenda than purely legislative compliance; personal and team development, improved managerial and team relationships and increased performance and output are just some of those benefits. The SRA have given law firms till the end of September to submit diversity data about staff to improve transparency and around diversity in the legal sector. The masterclass will help you use the mandatory diversity data to identify and develop a strategy for areas with scope for improvement. This masterclass specifically designed for law firms, will provide you with examples and case studies, as well as practical tips and techniques to ensure each firm has a clear base to work from.

In order to provide a particularly powerful learning environment the masterclass will involve: exercises in varying dynamics, discussion, skills practice, sharing of relevant experience and case studies, as well as facilitator input. You will be encouraged to identify solutions to your own situations, thus giving you greater ownership for personal outcomes of the programme. The intention is that the class will be challenging, thought provoking and enjoyable.
