Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion
At Quadrant Chambers, we take as our starting point that there is a lot of work to do to promote equality, diversity, and inclusion in our Chambers, the Commercial and Chancery Bars, and the Bar more generally. As a Chambers, we are committed to doing as much of that work as we can, both inwardly to continue to improve on the strides that we are making within Quadrant to increase diversity and inclusion and externally, on a much broader scale, across the Bar.
In this respect, we view diversity as wide ranging and intersectional, including neurodiversity, diversity of race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, gender (identity and expression), socio-economic background, sexuality, religion or belief, disability, and marital or civil partnership status. For us, a diverse Bar is critical to the integrity of the justice system that is, in principle, designed to serve the entirety of society. We also believe unequivocally in the inherent fairness of treating all people equally and ensuring that they are given an effective opportunity to access the profession, and when within the profession, the support required to develop thriving practices from within our Chambers and more generally across the Bar.
