Jones Day's commitment to diversity does not stop with recruitment. We are committed to making meaningful progress on diversity in the legal profession; to increasing diversity within the Firm; and to recruiting, retaining, and promoting the best talent, from all backgrounds. In London, some of our initiatives include; Affinity Groups, bringing together employees with shared experiences or backgrounds to provide support, training, and networking opportunities; Our Aspiring Professionals Programme, working directly with state schools in under privileged neighbourhoods to help students from under-represented and low-income backgrounds gain access to leading universities and enter careers in global professional businesses like Jones Day; Partnerships with charities providing internships and training students and graduates from ethnic minority backgrounds; Our application processes are contextualised, to help us better identify candidates with true potential regardless of circumstance and; Our Legal Apprenticeship Programme, one of the first in the City of London, offering high-achieving candidates the opportunity to enter the workplace straight from school and qualify as solicitors, without the burden of University debt. We are proud of our accomplishments and we remain unwaveringly optimistic about the Firm because of our people, who allow us to tap the true potential of our global organisation.
