FA National Equality StandardFoot Anstey LLP has become the sixth law firm to be awarded the National Equality Standard (NES). This was received on first time assessment – something less than a third of businesses have achieved.

The UK National Equality Standard was developed by businesses to bring clarity and consistency to efforts to tackle inequality and promote inclusion. To be awarded the NES, an organisation must be independently assessed against a robust set of criteria against seven core standards. NES assessors review extensive documentation and conduct comprehensive interviews and focus groups.

The standard is supported by the Home Office and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI). Businesses that currently hold the standard nationally include Arup, EDF Energy and Thomson Reuters.
