Equality and diversity

Minster Law is committed to equality and diversity and being a workplace that creates a sense of belonging for everyone.

Inclusive culture

We are committed to creating a culture where people feel involved, respected, valued, connected and can be their authentic selves and to be a company that attracts, engages and develops our diverse talent across Minster.

Progressive practices

Through our dedicated ED&I committee, we’ve developed new policies and engrained these into our practices to ensure equality, diversity, and inclusion can flourish at Minster Law.

Committed to learning and improving

When it comes to equality, diversity, and inclusion, we understand that we need to listen to get it right. We’re committed to learning and ask ourselves how we can do better for our colleagues.

“It is our individual social, economic and cultural identities that make us who we are and what makes Minster a great place to work. We’re devoted to making sure every single colleague thrives in our business regardless of their background.

“We’re committed to educating ourselves as a business and continuing to learn. A huge part of this journey is listening to the experiences and perspectives of our colleagues, which is why we’ve created a safe place in the form of our ED&I committee for colleagues to discuss all aspects of diversity.”Shirley Woolham, CEO

Our Commitment

At Minster, we are committed to promoting equality, embracing diversity, and eliminating discrimination in our own policies, practices, procedures, and in those areas which it has influence.

Our equality and diversity practices help us to ensure all our colleagues, candidates and clients receive equal treatment and are not discriminated against, either directly or indirectly, according to their ethnic origin, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital or family status, age, religion or beliefs or disability. 

We are an equal opportunities employer and do not tolerate discrimination, harassment, victimisation, and bullying of any kind. We support the right for all people to be treated with dignity and respect and will take appropriate action to ensure this is achieved. We pride ourselves on providing a positive, supportive working environment where all our people have the opportunity to shine. This includes actively attracting and recruiting people from diverse backgrounds, and providing accessible facilities for people with disabilities. 


Assistive technology

We want as many people as possible to be able to use our website. To provide additional support to aid a more inclusive user experience we provide the Recite Me assistive technology tool. This Toolbar enables all website visitors to customise their experience through a range of options to suit their online accessibility and language needs.

The Recite Me toolbar provides text-to-speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech voices and many other features.

We Listen

As part of our equality and diversity strategy, we’re committed to constantly improving our practices and monitoring and progressing our policies to ensure everyone we work with is treated as fairly as possible. Our policy also extends to other third-party individuals we work with including suppliers, barristers, and agencies. 

We have a committee and routine listening groups to drive our principles and continue to create awareness and conversations around inclusion and diversity. 

We were honoured to have been awarded “Diversity and Inclusion” at the British Claims Awards 2023 for our ED&I initiatives.

The judges said: “Minster Law is achieving fantastic results across disability and social mobility, targeting specific issues with understanding and patience to improve accessibility, communications, and access to legal careers.”
