Diversity

Marsden Group Divider Graphic

Diversity is one of Marsden’s six core values. We firmly believe that we all rise in supporting equality.

We want to be part of an equal, inclusive, and diverse global legal community. We are committed to attracting, recruiting, developing, and retaining a wide diversity of individuals in our own business as well as partnering with our clients to ensure they achieve their own diversity and inclusion goals.

We believe that engaging with a range of ideas, perspectives, cultures, and people creates a more dynamic environment, fosters greater creativity and it has been proven to contribute to more dramatic and meaningful growth.

As part of our registration process we would be grateful for your support in completing (a short) Diversity Monitoring form which is intended to help us along with our clients maintain equal opportunities best practice and improve diversity in the legal sector.  All information supplied will be treated in the strictest confidence and held in accordance with our privacy notice.

 

As a thank you, for every completed form Marsden receive back we are pledging to plant 5 trees via our partnership with JUST ONE Tree
