I am a first seat trainee in Corporate M&A and navigating myself through the first couple of months of my career! Prior to starting at Travers Smith, I studied law at Queen Mary and spent my gap year at Barclays.
For me, diversity means creating support networks within the firm for colleagues to have open conversations about different lived experiences. When we are open to listening about the barriers that different individuals face, I think we create a healthy, understanding and comfortable working environment. With this understanding, there are more conscious efforts to hire individuals from various different backgrounds.
