Andy believes that achievements can be measured in many ways, and often it's the smallest things that can make the biggest difference, but does acknowledge a few particular career highlights. Andy considers it a huge privilege to have worked on some of the diversity and inclusion initiatives for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. In 2014 Andy worked on Freshfields submission for the Stonewall Equality Index which ultimately saw Freshfields listed in the Index for the first time and the first magic circle firm to do.
Andy has over 15 years experience as a diversity and inclusion specialist and more recently has taken on role which includes Corporate Responsibility as well. Using his own experiences Andy has always taken a very pragmatic approach to diversity and inclusion believing you have to bring people to the table and engage with them if you are to achieve the desired outcome. Andy admits there is still a lot of work to do, but also thinks it important to acknowledge the considerable progress the legal sector in the UK has made in the last decade. For Andy it is all about making a difference everyday, regardless of how big or small that difference may be, and always looking forward.
