Barristers launch equality, diversity and inclusion directory

Maitland Chambers, Responsibility

03 December 2021

Nine barristers from the inaugural Bar Council Leadership Programme, including Narinder Jhittay, have launched the Bar’s first ever Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Directory.

The Directory provides an up-to-date resource, setting out guidance, clearly and in one place, for use by barristers, Chambers and others, on a wide range of essential topics, to encourage the profession to adopt and embrace improved practices.

Split into 11 key areas of equality, diversity and inclusion, the chapters provide an overview, set out the applicable minimum legislative and regulatory standards, draw together resources from existing initiatives, highlight other commendable practices beyond the Bar and provide an overview of themes and best practices.

The Directory is available to download from the Bar Council’s website here.
