The skyline at Marina Bay, Singapore

The diversity and inclusion categories for the Chambers Asia Pacific Awards 2023 are now closed for submissions. These awards celebrate the fantastic achievements of firms and individuals who are furthering the advancement of diversity, inclusion, pro bono and sustainability across the Asia Pacific region. Since 2014, the Chambers team have conducted in-depth research and hosted numerous diversity seminars global.

With clients increasingly demanding to see improvements in inclusion from their law firms, the awards provide an opportunity for both private practice and in-house legal teams to demonstrate the key work and success they are bringing to shifting the inclusion dial. The Asia Pacific market has made huge strides in this field and we look forward to shining a light on those who are going above and beyond to advance D&I and pro bono.
