Diversity reporting

To demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we choose to voluntarily report both our Gender and Ethnicity Pay Gaps on an annual basis. Reviewing and publishing our data annually leads us to reflect upon and understand the size of our pay gaps to help us identify any issues that need to be addressed.

All SRA firms, regardless of size, are required to collect, report and publish data about the diversity of their workforce every two years. At Fox Williams, we believe publishing our Diversity data Yr-on-Yr is important to inform our diversity and inclusion priorities.

Building an inclusive firm: our D&I commitment

We are proud of our dynamic, creative and diverse workforce. We strongly believe that diversity is critical to our success as a business: a more diverse workforce encourages fresh thinking, new perspectives and different approaches to our clients’ issues. Our purpose is to;

Create and sustain a diverse workforce that mirrors the rich diversity of the city of London and our clients.

Make inclusivity more than a goal; for us it’s a core value. The concept of “Our People” is the centre of our core values and we seek to understand and celebrate what makes each of us unique. We are committed to ensuring that each individual is valued, respected and treated fairly.

Nurture a friendly, collaborative culture that enables every individual, regardless of background or experience, to thrive. Our commitment to collaboration empowers us to innovate, solve challenges, and excel as a team.

Through this shared purpose, we aspire to not only meet but exceed the expectations of our people, clients, and broader community.

Diversity and inclusion are not just words on a page but an active commitment that shapes our everyday actions and decisions.”
