Bold. Distinctive. Inclusive.


Our vision for Hogan Lovells is to make a meaningful, positive impact in our firm and on society and to establish ourselves as market leaders in diversity and inclusion.

Delivering on our commitments to diversity and inclusion is one of the five key strategic priorities of the firm, on a par with putting clients at the center of everything we do and enhancing profitability. We are actively creating an inclusive workplace where each of our people can thrive as their authentic self, by mitigating unconscious bias and actively creating opportunities for and supporting our colleagues. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion makes us a better law firm and helps us to deliver the best experience for our clients, attract the best talent, and drive innovation.

Our global team of eleven diversity professionals works together with seven diversity partners around the globe to deliver on these commitments using a strategy focused on:
