Reed Smith’s award winning Business Inclusion Group for people with disabilities at Reed
Smith (LEADRS) was formed in 2012 and has grown to over 120 members across the firm. Our
motto is: “Nurture Talent, Support Challenges and Celebrate Differences” and we aim to recruit
talented individuals with disabilities and to advance their careers within Reed Smith.
This year, we launched our Mental Health Task Force, a sub-group of LEADRS, for people who
are experiencing or have experienced mental health difficulties.
We have achieved a great deal over the last seven years but we are very conscious that there is
more work to be done and we aim to continue to improve.
We are committed to:

  • Continuing to make recruiting and retaining people with disabilities a priority
  •  Celebrating the achievements of people with disabilities through our series of role model
    videos featuring our partners and employees
  • Launching our new Disability Etiquette Guide
  • Celebrating the International Day for Persons with Disabilities with events across the
    firm’s offices on 3 rd December.
