Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Everybody wins with equality
We believe that we are stronger together and that our differences make us strong. We know that we are more confident, more effective and perform at our best when we can completely be ourselves, and that the more diverse perspectives we have, the more we are able to learn, grow and thrive. We are committed to promoting a culture that supports and values diversity and inclusion. Our aim is for our firm to be truly representative of all sections of society and for all staff to feel respected and able to give their best.

Our regulatory body, the Solicitors Regulation Authority requires us to collect, report and publish data about the diversity make-up of our workforce every two years. Our 2021 Diversity Report can be found here. We use this data to identify and overcome barriers that applicants and employee face and to assist us in promoting equality of opportunity.
The Social Mobility Business Partnership (SMBP) is a volunteer-led charity supported by Mayo Wynne Baxter since 2017. We are excited to be returning in person this year.
It is a collaboration of 170 commercial organisations, professional services firms and professional sports teams working in towns and cities across the U.K who are all committed to supporting students from low income backgrounds in their pursuit of a career in business. Since 2014, SMBP has grown from offering opportunities to 20 students in London, to over 470 student places across the UK in 2021.
For more information about this year’s event, please see PDF flyer or take a look at https://smbp.org.uk/
At Mayo Wynne Baxter, we understand that some people have hidden disabilities - disabilities that aren’t immediately apparent and that those people may need additional support or assistance.
We also appreciate that not every person with a disability will want to disclose the fact of their disability to all those that they meet during their daily life, therefore, as part of our ethos of inclusivity and equity, we will wear the Sunflower to discreetly offer our support to those who need it.
Please let us know how we can help you.
We are stronger together.
