At Reed Smith diversity, equity and inclusion are key components of our culture and values, our business model, and our economic platform. Being inclusive is not only good for our people, it is also good for our profitability. It helps us develop the right relationships with our clients, forming connections that lead to better understanding of commercial challenges and opportunities. Innovation flourishes in a diverse environment; solutions are derived more rapidly and cooperatively. People thrive when they are respected and valued.
We have reported our figures for the fifth year of statutory pay gap reporting in the United Kingdom.
We know we have some way to go to achieve our goal of complete parity for all at the firm but we are proud of the progress we have made and remain fully committed to achieving that objective. The firm’s ongoing success depends on its ability to innovate and develop new ways of working to ensure that we can continue to deliver the very best service to our clients.
