Diversity & Inclusion

The General Counsel for Diversity & Inclusion (GCD&I)

What is this initiative?

This initiative is owned and led by General Counsel and the In-House Signatory Community representing the in-house legal functions of over 100 major corporations. The common goal is supporting meaningful equity, diversity and inclusion across the legal profession.

GCD&I’s Working Groups are populated by members of the Signatory Teams who work with passion, energy and a collaborative spirit to develop tools and content to support Signatories and the wider Partner Community.

  • In-House Working Group:  Our mission is to challenge and cement the role of equity, diversity & inclusion in the In-House legal team as a building block for business success.
  • Legal Service Provider Working Group : Our mission is to move the needle in terms of how In-House Signatories engage with law firms in ways that promote greater equity, diversity and inclusion.
  • External Engagement Working Group: Our mission is to support the objectives of GCD&I through events and communications across the GCD&I Community and more widely.
  • KPI and Metrics Taskforce:  Standardising metrics to help measure progress; drive accountability and provide a platform for the conversation between client and law firm

GCD&I also has a number of Expert Communities to provide guidance and support on different areas of diversity,  as well as providing platform to share learning.
