Doughty Street Chambers awarded Diversity & Inclusion: Outstanding Set award at Chambers & Partners UK Bar Awards 2022
We are delighted to announce that Doughty Street Chambers was awarded the Diversity & Inclusion: Outstanding Set award at last night’s Chambers & Partners UK Bar Awards 2022.
The Chambers & Partners UK Bar Awards are based on extensive objective research by a dedicated team of over 200 analysts and client feedback from the 2022 edition of Chambers UK Bar Guide. Doughty Street Chambers won ‘Outstanding Set’ in Diversity & Inclusion on account of “the breadth and depth” of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, noting our internal D&I initiatives, guidance for suppliers and fair allocation of work, and our work “across the Bar and in the community to create an inclusive and equitable profession”.
Maya Sikand KC, Chambers' EDO said: “We are absolutely delighted that the essential work we’ve been doing to embed change and foster inclusivity has been recognised. But winning this award does not mean we will sit back. There is much more to do, and we are determined to do whatever it takes to break down the many barriers in and around our profession.”
