Equity, diversity, and inclusion at BDB Pitmans

At BDB Pitmans, our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion (ED&I) sits at the heart of who we are as a firm. It affects all areas of law firm life, and strongly informs our approach to working with clients, partners, and the communities we serve.

We are passionate about ensuring we create a work environment where everyone feels safe, respected, and fully supported to be themselves. We celebrate diversity in all its forms, but we also recognise we have a long way to go. We are not afraid of asking difficult questions and making difficult decisions to ensure that we are taking the necessary and right steps to creating a truly equitable workplace.

Our ED&I work, though, goes beyond how we work with our colleagues. Our firm values – we act with respect, we work in partnership, and we find solutions – are deeply embedded in ED&I principles, and heavily inform how we approach client relationships, as well as external partnerships.

We have also taken steps to ensure that our ED&I and CSR work are closely aligned, whether that is through partnerships with companies such as Grace & Green, support for our charity partners, our pro bono work, or our increased focused on areas such as social mobility.

In September 2020 we appointed our first Diversity and Inclusion manager, Fiona Fleming.

We are committed to championing diversity and inclusivity within the workplace and what better way to demonstrate this than by sponsoring Reading FC Women for the next three seasons, helping them to influence the next generation of female footballers and sports women.

We are also proud sponsors of the AIM Awards 2021 Diversity Champion award.

This award has been created to identify companies, listed on the AIM stock market, who are leaders in terms of fostering diverse thinking and showing that diversity and inclusion is built into their workplace environment.

Why does boardroom diversity matter, what does it look like and how can it be achieved? Read our guide here >

Andrew Smith, Managing Partner and member of the Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Group

‘Diversity and inclusion isn’t just a tick box exercise at BDB Pitmans, we really are trying to build an inclusive firm where everyone’s differences are embraced and valued.

I’m proud to be a member of the Strategy Group and ensure that diversity and inclusion at BDB Pitmans is given the priority and support it deserves.’
