The charter is accompanied by a set of protocols designed to help signatories meet their commitments.
The reporting and monitoring protocol helps signatories to collect and record the diversity statistics of their workforce, a task that is now a regulatory requirement.
The flexible working protocol presents a clear business case for flexible working, guidelines, checklists, case studies and practical tools to help law practices embed flexible working in the workplace.
The legal procurement protocol is a commitment by purchasers of legal services to consider diversity and inclusion as part of their normal tendering process.
Firms can access the checklists and toolkits to help them implement the protocols in their work through the Diversity and Charter reporting tool once they have signed up to the charter.
