Diversity Survey 2019

Diversity Survey Results 2019

VWV is committed to being an equal opportunities employer.

In order to assess our effectiveness, we monitor diversity in the firm. Our most recent diversity surveys were carried out in line with the SRA's requirements and include questions about socio-economic background and caring responsibilities. All staff and partners had the opportunity to complete the survey, although participation was voluntary.

We are publishing these summary results to ensure that no individuals can be identified. The survey and results will be updated annually.
