Seven D Young & Co partners now committed to the IP Inclusive Leaders’ Pledge

The IP Inclusive Leaders’ Pledge is a commitment entered into by individuals rather than organisations. Intended for signature by those in senior, decision-making roles, it includes a promise to work alongside more junior colleagues to effect positive change.

D Young & Co now has seven partners signed up to the pledge, demonstrating their commitment to the provision of visible and active leadership on improving diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the firm. Partners who have signed the Leaders’ Pledge are:

The Leaders’ Pledge consists of eight high-level commitments:

  1. Provide visible and proactive leadership to improve D&I in the organisation.
  2. Take D&I seriously at the highest level.
  3. Embed and value D&I throughout the organisational culture.
  4. Build trust and safe spaces throughout the organisation.
  5. Educate themselves and their colleagues about D&I issues.
  6. Share their privileges.
  7. Insist on equity.
  8. Work closely with HR and/or management colleagues to achieve this.

Our signatories have also set out practical steps they will take to fulfil their pledge and demonstrate that D&I will be championed at the highest levels.
