Diversity and Inclusion

One Hogan Lovells. Many Perspectives

Diversity and inclusion is at the core of who we are and how we do business. We are a high-performing global team with people from different backgrounds, perspectives and life experiences. We are at our best when we can be ourselves – working together and delivering for our clients.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to become a leader in diversity and inclusion, where all of our people can be themselves and feel empowered to succeed. We know that diversity makes us a better law firm and helps us to attract the best talent, drive innovation, and deliver the best experience for our clients.

Our Global Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Committee comprises senior representation from across our practice groups, industry sectors, and regions. The Committee is accountable for defining and executing our global D&I strategy. In addition, we have regional committees that are responsible for delivering this strategy in alignment with local priorities. We also have a Global D&I Advisory Group made up of individuals from across legal and business services, representing diverse voices and perspectives. The advisory group acts as a sounding board and idea generator and supports communication of initiatives.

Globally we evaluate our initiatives through four priorities:

  • Promote responsibility – Ensure that we have governance structures in place to deploy our strategy with effective monitoring on progress, and clear accountability across our regions, practice groups, and Business Services.
  • Embed our culture – Provide all of our people with the training, tools, and environment needed to empower them to be their authentic selves in the firm and with clients.
  • Integrate D&I into our people processes – Ensure that our entire infrastructure supports our diversity and inclusion aims to attract, recruit, retain, and advance our people.
  • Enhance our brand – Position ourselves as an employer of choice for top talent in diverse communities and leverage that diversity to strengthen our client relationships and deliver excellence.
