  • I think this kind of step shows that a firm is serious about diversity. Of the magic circle, CC has adopted it and the rest have said that they will not as they presumably think that their current efforts are working just fine. And/or HR have no confidence in picking candidates without those handy tick boxes.

    No wonder the profession is not further forward with this issue.

  • I wonder if this will also be passed on as a requirement by firms to recruiters? That would be an easy get out by Mayer Brown and Clifford Chance (for example) to gain publicity for being "inclusive" when in fact nothing has actually changed over the past 50 years....

  • Ah, before you know it Partners from the professions and Bankers will be bending over backwards to get little Harry and Saffie into the worst local Comp. and then encouraging them to apply to the University of Freddie Starr (Birkenhead Campus) in order to get a leg up in life.

  • University of Freddie Starr ?

    Didn't that used to be the Jim Davidson HE College of Culture and Tourism?

  • The scuttlebut is that they've been using a blind CV policy to choose their senior management for many years now.

  • How about Mayer Brown focus on retaining the trainees they've got rather than this marketing puff...
