Equality, Diversity and Wellbeing Committee

The IBC is committed to promoting Equality and Diversity amongst both its membership and throughout the clerking profession generally. That commitment extends beyond the role of those employed as clerks to all staff employed in Chambers.

In the coming years the IBC aims to promote Equality and Diversity to its membership and further afield to ensure our members awareness and understanding of its application for Chambers’ business.

The IBC is fully supportive of parallel initiatives run by and supported by the Bar Council and Bar Standards Board.

Barristers, clerks and chambers staff are exposed to emotionally and psychologically challenging environments on a daily basis. Wellbeing at the Bar aim to tackle the stigma associated with mental health and encourage members of the profession, and those who support us, to better understand wellbeing and feel empowered to make healthy choices.
