Diversity & Inclusion

We know an inclusive culture, alongside a diverse workforce, makes us more innovative and agile.

At Bird & Bird we want our people to bring their whole self, and their best self, to work. Our local D&I Committee is dedicated to ensuring that everyone is welcome here. We are passionate about creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity and equality, and that is why we are regularly nominated as an Employer of Choice.

Global D&I


The shift to a more sustainable way of doing business needs people who embrace change and spark innovation. We’re up for the challenge, are you?

Our local Environmental and Sustainability Committee supports and drives our global E&S commitment by creating and reviewing local policies and guidelines, introducing new green and clean office initiatives, and increasing our social and ethical awareness as global citizens.

Global Sustainability

Pro Bono

The ability to help isn't always enough. In today's world, more often than not, what's needed is time. We believe pro bono is time well spent.

Bird & Bird is a strong supporter of social justice and we recognise the importance of ensuring the law is accessible to all. We are proud signatories to the National Pro Bono Target. We support our fee earners as they undertake 35 hours of pro bono work each year and encourage all employees to get involved with our pro bono clients.  Our pro bono partner oversees all the pro bono work we deliver and is supported by a passionate Pro Bono Committee, driving initiatives aimed at greater social responsibility.

Global Pro Bono

Corporate Social Responsibility

We believe in taking an active role in supporting our communities to make a difference.

We are focused on sourcing goods and services from suppliers that are environmentally sustainable and ethically made and we support local businesses and communities at every opportunity. Whether it is purchasing stationery or catering from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations or buying gifts from international charitable foundations, regional communities, or organisations supporting survivors of domestic and family violence; if we can see our dollars doing good things in our community, we know we are on the right track when it comes to giving back.

Bird & Bird lawyers have a passion for the sectors they work in ̶ this brings a real energy to the workplace. I work mainly for sports clients and have a passion for sport. Sharing this passion with smart, motivated colleagues who are fun to work with is one of the best things about this job.
