Diversity & Inclusion

Please describe your diversity programs and initiatives A diverse environment is a rich environment, and an open, inclusive atmosphere benefits everyone who works within it. Fostering such an environment enables us to respond with a greater agility to the challenges faced by our clients in a diverse, multicultural world. Our goal is to always exceed client expectations and be the most attractive place to work. We achieve this because we recruit, retain, reward and develop our people with regard to their abilities and contributions and without reference to their background, gender, age, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, political belief or disability. Our mission is to attract, retain and promote individuals of exceptional ability and talent from as broad a range of backgrounds as possible. Although management provides the leadership framework and associated policies, it is the responsibility of everyone at Cassels to sustain a culture that supports principles of diversity and inclusivity. “Diversity” means treating everyone fairly and consistently, regardless of background, gender, age, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, political belief or disability. The firm will do its best to tap into cultural differences to achieve organizational success and support staff satisfaction. In recognition of our work to achieve these goals, our Inclusion & Diversity Committee was honoured at the 2016 Lexpert Zenith Awards. For more information, see
