Inclusion and Diversity

People are at the heart of everything that we do. And that is critical to our success.

We want every person at RPC to feel valued, respected and free to be themselves. And it makes business sense too - different backgrounds, different perspectives and different experiences all make us who we are and mean that we can offer the most innovative and diverse thinking to our clients. 

We've put into place a number of initiatives and development programmes to not only support our people as they progress through their careers, but to also ensure that our population is as reflective of society as possible.

Internally, we have eight I&D internal networks – we call them 'Work Streams' – focussed on gender, ethnicity, mental health, caring responsibilities, social mobility, LGBT+, faith and disability. RPC RAIN, the firm's LGBT+ network, spans the firm's London and Bristol offices and advocates for inclusion in the workplace as well. Underpinning our I&D networks is allies@RPC, our peer network committed to supporting colleagues and promoting the inclusive culture at the firm.

We also partner with a number of organisations including;

  • Aspiring Solicitors (and we are a Founder Member of the Aspiring Solicitors Foundation)
  • Business Disability Form
  • SEO
  • The Women's Insurance Network
  • Stonewall
  • CityParents
  • Law Society's City Law Firm Diversity & Inclusion Forum
