Learning and Development


Embrace is our multicultural network, supporting the advancement and celebration of racial and cultural diversity at Bird & Bird. It is a supportive community for anyone within Bird & Bird who relates to, identifies with, appreciates or celebrates culture, religion, history and experience. 

Embrace has three key focus areas: 

  • Embracing culture and faith – raising awareness of the diversity and intersectionality that exists within our firm and our clients, creating a safe place for people to celebrate their heritage, ethnicity, religion, traditions and culture   

  • Embracing community – creating opportunities for people to connect, learn, be curious, share experiences, and build relationships within the firm and across the legal industry

  • Embracing change - actively engaging with HR and the firm's leadership to provide insights and feedback, and support the attraction, retention, and advancement of underrepresented talent
