Diversity & Inclusion

McInnes Cooper is committed to creating an inclusive workplace that values and supports the perspectives, cultures and experiences of everyone. We recognize that our individual differences make us a stronger, more adaptable law firm, and we believe an inclusive workplace inspires us to realize our full potential and enhances our ability to serve our clients and communities.

We have been committed to fostering equity, diversity and inclusion for many years and have revitalized our approach with the formation of a Diversity & Inclusion Working Group in 2019.

With full support from our senior leadership team, our Diversity & Inclusion Working Group is implementing a robust Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan focused on four key themes:

  • Recognize – We will recognize the past and present status of equity, diversity and inclusion at our firm through quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis.
  • Understand – We will help our members develop an understanding of inclusive workplace best practices through engagement in learning and dialogue.
  • Commit – We will infuse diversity and inclusion considerations into all facets of our firm, including our employment practices, and the measurement of our success.
  • Celebrate – We will celebrate, support and recognize our uniqueness.
