Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie is proud to support The Valuable 500 in their global mission to put disability on leadership agendas and help unlock the social and economic value of people living with disabilities across the world.

Over 1.3 billion people across the world live with some form of disability and at Baker McKenzie we have been working hard internally to create a global understanding of what this means for all of our people. Specifically, we have focused on accessibility, and we are already seeing the systemic value of engaging and working across the Firm to ensure that accessibility is embedded into the everyday.

Across the firm we have committed to:

1. remove barriers to participation for our people, clients, candidate talent, guests and suppliers
2. improve the accessibility of our communication platforms (tech and in person) for all our people and clients

Kirsty Wilson, Chair of the Firm's Global Inclusion & Diversity Committee commented: 

"Inclusion and diversity are integral to our culture and our business strategy. We are committed to building a collaborative, fulfilling and professional environment where our people, prospective applicants and clients are treated equitably regardless of any disability or long term (physical or mental) health condition.

We are excited to be part of a wave of change where we can work together to remove inequality and can continue to be ambitious and challenge ourselves at every opportunity to make meaningful progress. It is important to us that people with any form of disability feel welcomed, included and supported."
