Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) committee
Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) committee is made up of partners and staff from across the firm. Its task is to promote EDI within the firm, increasing awareness of the benefits of EDI for staff as well as our clients and driving the removal of barriers to this wherever possible.
We are continually expanding our diversity training both internally and externally to ensure fair and enlightened working practices which support everyone’s needs, be that in relation to mental health, the menopause or recruitment.

Hear what our committee have to say
“Our EDI committee places a focus on equity, diversity and creating an inclusive environment for all staff. This not only benefits the staff but drives diversity of thought in an ever-changing business landscape. In my opinion this can only benefit our industry, our firm and our wider community. I founded the EDI Committee because in my opinion the legal industry in general can be archaic in its outlook to diversity with several groups underrepresented in the profession compared to other professions. More and more progress is being made but still barriers to entry may stem from lack of social mobility due to the cost of training or gaps in mobility once in the profession for diversity at leadership level amongst other reasons. B P Collins has always driven progress and setting up an EDI Committee ensures that progress continues to thrive.” – Camilla Haggith Khonje, Senior Associate, Private Client
“It’s an incredibly important part of modern life that we continue to push equality, diversity and inclusion forward.” – Josh Dickinson, Trainee Solicitor
