Life at Arthur Cox

Inclusion and Diversity

WorkplaceEqualityIndexShortlist__SeniorLeaderArthurCoxAt Arthur Cox, we are committed to creating, developing and nurturing an inclusive and diverse workplace where individuals are valued and supported. We recognize that diversity means treating people as individuals so it is our mission to ensure everyone feels welcome, at ease and supported at all times.

 

We endeavour to create an inclusive and diverse work environment because it is the right thing to do. In a diverse workplace people are encouraged and inspired to reach their full potential all the while making the firm stronger and better.

 

Under the leadership of our diversity partners Grainne Hennessy and Simon Hannigan, we champion a wide range of initiatives throughout the whole firm. These include Women in the firm Initiative, LGBT Initiative, Ability and Health Initiative and PRIME.

 

Arthur Cox was the first Irish law firm to establish a LGBT+ network. We are immensely proud of our 330 + strong Alliance.
