Nearly half of Britain's legal workforce thinks that diversity should be more of a priority at work, according to a report from UK-based tech-for-good developer, Culture Shift.

The survey found that 46% of workers said inclusion was a priority, while 52% admitted that their employer could do more. 

And the report also uncovered that 36% of staff said their employer merely made ‘token gestures’ on diversity.

Olive Strachan, the diversity and inclusion specialist, welcomed the report. She said: “Employees are calling for their employers to focus on recruiting people from more diverse backgrounds, while providing training to the workforce on diversity and inclusion.”

One hundred staff from the legal sector were among 1,000 people interviewed for the study.
