Meeting our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy 2014 to 2017

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy 2014-17 is now complete. In this, we aimed to meet three objectives that covered these areas of work:

  • Our people and the culture of the SRA
  • Our organisation and the way we work
  • Our activities to promote diversity in the profession.

We considered the findings from the Independent Comparative Case Review published in March 2014. We commissioned the review to understand why black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) solicitors were overrepresented in some of our investigation and disciplinary work. We wanted to be sure that we were making decisions and applying our policies fairly. The review found no evidence of discrimination, but identified a range of factors which might be contributing to the overrepresentation. We published our response to the review and set out the actions to address these factors in our strategy.

Going forward our strategic approach to EDI is part of our Corporate Strategy 2017-20.
