We are celebrating National Inclusion Week, which takes place from 26 September to 1 October. This annual event highlights the importance of inclusion in our everyday lives, in all its forms.
At Morton Fraser, we believe that everyone, no matter their background, gender, sexuality, ethnicity or religion, should have the opportunity to reach their full potential in a workplace that is inclusive, respectful and welcoming. We want to create a culture where everyone's unique voice and lived experience are both heard and seen.
We're also passionate about actively addressing underrepresentation and breaking down systemic barriers for those wishing to pursue a career in the legal profession. Our current achievements in this area have included Rare recruitment for trainees from social disadvantaged backgrounds, our PRIME work placements providing wider and fairer access to school pupils interested in a career in law, and our recent participation in the Black Professionals Scotland Programme. We are also a Disability Confident Employer.
This all chimes with this year's National Inclusion Week theme #ThePowerofNow, which gives us the opportunity to reflect on our initiatives and to consider what further actions we can take in the future, conversations that will no doubt be supported by the members of our active Employee Resource Groups.
Watch our video to learn more about what we are doing to foster an inclusive workplace and industry, and to hear from our employees on what inclusivity means to them. And find out more by visiting our culture and social mobility and education pages.
