Diversity & Inclusion

At DWF we aim to create an inclusive environment where you can bring your whole self to work and enable our diversity to truly flourish.

All our people help to shape our culture by sharing their perspectives, experiences and challenging our thinking. We value this diversity of thought as it helps us to become a better global business and be better together, which is one of DWF's core values.

Strategy and reports

Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Group

DWF have a collaborative and inclusive culture that drives our decisions. Our Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Group defines and delivers our global inclusion strategy. Executive Sponsors and more than 45 senior leaders, supported by our Affinity Networks and a growing number of Diversity Champions, deliver action plans supporting gender, race, LGBT+, age, disability, agile and flexible working and mental health.

Gender Pay Gap Report

We published our 2019 Gender Pay Gap Report in accordance with the guidelines set out in The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

Whilst we are working hard to speed up the pace of change in our business, there is a gender pay gap due to the fact that we have more men at senior levels in higher paid roles. We are taking targeted and sustained action where there is currently under-representation and we are making positive progress. We know that changing decades of imbalance in our business and sector is going to take time, but we are committed to addressing it.

Our latest action plan set out our immediate priorities. This sustained focus on meaningful actions will result in a more diverse workforce supported and empowered through our inclusive culture and values.

Building an inclusive workplace

Our employee-led networks provide the opportunity for our people to build an inclusive workplace, connect like-minded colleagues and create a space where they feel safe voicing their experiences.

Our networks include:

  • Out Front: our company wide network for lesbian, gay, bi and trans colleagues, and any ally colleagues.
  • This is Me: our company wide network for progressing gender parity.
  • Race and Ethnicity Network: our group focused on increasing BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) diversity and promoting cultural diversity across the business.

Our global diversity and inclusion campaigns

Each year all of our locations come together to celebrate and champion diversity and inclusion:

  • International Women's Day involves initiatives that give voice to the importance of creating a gender-equal world, and sessions where we inspire the next generation of women and colleagues who share their stories in photos, quotes and blogs.
  • Diversity Week provides an opportunity to reflect on our achievements, showcase our inclusion initiatives and take the time to gain new perspectives on our lives and others around us.
  • International Men's Day encourages our male colleagues to become champions and sponsors for gender equality. It provides an opportunity to address issues facing men including working flexibly, men's mental health, and boys in education.
