Equality & Diversity

It is the policy of Three Raymond Buildings:

  • to ensure that its tenants, pupils and staff will not discriminate directly or indirectly against, bully or victimise anyone on the grounds of their race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, citizenship, sex (including gender re-assignment), sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, religion or political persuasion;
  • to provide a safe and socially responsible working environment;
  • to promote equal opportunities for people wishing to join our organisation

This statement applies to:

  • the recruitment processes through which tenants, pupils and staff are selected;
  • the conduct and treatment of all tenants, pupils and staff during their tenure in Chambers, including training and career development, and
  • the treatment of professional and lay clients.

See our Equality & Diversity Policy here.

The responsibility for delivering effective policies and procedures, promoting best practice in Chambers and developing public engagement lies with our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee which comprises five Silks, six Juniors, and four members of staff.  Three Equality & Diversity Officers have been appointed from within the Committee with responsibility for policy review and implementation, diversity awareness training, advice to Tenants, Pupils and Staff on diversity issues, monitoring and compliance.

Our EDOs are Hugh Davies OBE KC, Ruby Shrimpton (Deputy) and Alison Marshall.
