Jackson Lees Group win Liverpool Law Society Award for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Jackson Lees Group are thrilled to have won the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Award at the Liverpool Law Society’s 2023 annual dinner.

The Dinner is one of the highlights of the region’s legal professionals’ calendar and this year it was held at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Liverpool city centre. These awards highlight the talent, diversity and skill across the Merseyside region and beyond.

The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion category was new for this year and it aimed to shine a light on the work of law firms that champion equality, diversity, and inclusion in their own organisation and/or the wider community.

Thanks to Dottie Lee, Head of Recruitment, Inclusion and Wellbeing, and her team, Jackson Lees Group are now being recognised for the work that they do surrounding neurodiversity. They ensure that everyone feels heard and included.

A special mention was included for the team’s work on Umbrella Passports. The Umbrella Passport empowers people to feel in control of their neurodivergence and their needs. It is effectively a user guide for them and those around them to unleash their full potential in a way that feels constructive and supportive.

Dottie said:

“I’m delighted that Jackson Lees Group have been recognised for their ongoing commitment and passion in this area. As a MAPD Group business our ethos is to Make a Positive Difference through our work, to our clients and to our people and I believe this award supports the work we do as a People Team. We are beyond proud that our Team walked away with this award; we were in excellent company in this category.”

On accepting the award, Mairi Probin, Chief People and Culture Officer, said:

“Jackson Lees Group is part of the MAPD Group and we have one core value – Making A Positive Difference. My team are incredible with the work they do. We celebrate and support our colleagues who are neurodiverse and bring the most incredible value to our business. To be recognised for it, I’m just so proud.”

Jackson Lees Group’s dedication to equality, diversity, and inclusion is an integral part of the company’s identity. Improving understanding and support internally translates into a better experience for clients and therefore increases access to legal services. We believe that by following our inclusive framework we can really make a positive difference.
