Diversity Data for all Tenants and Staff

9 King’s Bench Walk is committed to ensuring that we recruit, develop and retain the most talented barristers, pupils and staff to our Chambers. 

Chambers’ current Diversity Data Office is Suzanne Fewins. 

In line with the BSB’s guidance, in February 2021 the Diversity Data Officer provided all members of Chambers, and all staff within Chambers, the opportunity to provide diversity data covering age, gender, disability, ethnic group, religion or belief, sexual orientation, socio-economic background and caring responsibilities.

Forms were provided to 31 individuals.  24 completed forms were returned. Each individual was asked whether they consented to data being published if the number in any given category amounted to less than 10 individuals. The information provided in this summary is therefore premised by acknowledging that the data we are able to provide is limited to that which our workforce consented to sharing. If a category of data is not provided, it was not possible to publish such data to protect any individual who did not consent to publication if a category amounted to less than 10 individuals. Where the explanation ‘unable to provide data’ appears, we were able to publish some data, but not the full results, to protect any individual who did not consent to publication if a category amounted to less than 10 individuals. 

Chambers has not provided publication of anonymised data in respect of sexual orientation and religious beliefs. 

Chambers has split this data by seniority. The two categories of seniority have been identified as ‘those who have responsibility for supervising or managing the work of other lawyers or employees’ and those who do not have such a responsibility.
