Diversity

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity at Kennedys. As a growing international firm, attracting and retaining talent from a variety of different backgrounds has allowed us to develop a distinct culture which we are proud of.

Our principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity apply not only to our staff, but to the way we treat our visitors, clients, customers and suppliers. 

Our equality and diversity policy

We support our workplace and clients by following our equality and diversity policy. Our policy covers: discrimination; recruitment and selection; training and promotion; termination of employment; treating outside parties; monitoring and disabled employees.  

Our 2017 UK diversity figures

We collate diversity information annually from all our UK offices for monitoring purposes. The information is provided anonymously by both employees and partners and collected in line with guidance from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
