Doughty Street Chambers now certified as a Disability Confident Employer
We are proud to announce our Disability Employer (Level 2) accreditation this week following prolonged work by a committed group of staff and barristers. By asking how much we can achieve for disabled people under each criterion, not how little we can get away with to self-certify, we have embraced the Disability Confident framework to leverage real change.
We are also treating Disability Confident Employer as a journey towards achieving Disability Confident Leader status based on external accreditation. To learn more about the Disability Confident scheme, and how you can get involved, please click here.
