We have an active multicultural network, Embrace, which aims to promote and celebrate racial and cultural diversity in the workplace.

Embrace is a non-exclusive community that welcomes both members and allies of all cultural and racial backgrounds. The network provides a supportive community for our employees who relate to, identify with, appreciate or celebrate culture, religion, history and experience.

The network's mission statement is to:

Raise awareness of multiculturalism in the workplace, as well as on cultural and historical occasions of importance to the BAME community (e.g. Black History Month)

Create an internal network for supporting, sharing and celebrating racial and cultural diversity within Bird & Bird

Collaborate with HR and leadership at Bird & Bird towards enhancing its diversity policy and recruitment strategies, and continuing to engage with and give back BAME communities.

Social Events
Demonstrate through music and food how multi-cultures have a good time!
