Diversity & Inclusion Charter

ACC Australia is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive in-house profession and encourages its members to do the same. ACC Australia believes that collective action such as this can multiply the impact of individual actions and encourage more member companies to support an inclusive legal profession.

To this end, ACC Australia is proud to present the ACC Australia Diversity & Inclusion Charter. This Charter is provided to enable in-house legal leaders to declare their support and commitment for creating an inclusive legal profession as well as supporting diversity and inclusion initiatives within their legal departments.

The Charter includes commitments by signatories to implement practices that increase diversity and inclusion within their legal departments and provides examples of best practices from major legal departments to support others in implementing diversity and inclusion practices. The Charter is intended to complement and not supersede any existing diversity and inclusion policies or procedures within signatories’ organisations.

The Charter was developed by dedicated ACC Australia members and approved by the ACC Australia Board of Directors with the support of the ACC Australia GC100 and the ACC Australia Advocacy Committee.


Who should sign the Charter?
