    On 3 October 2017 LEAD collaborated with the Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) and YESS (Your Employment Settlement Service) in organizing a round table about employment dispute resolution. There was a wide range of participants who brought distinctive experience and expertise, for example from the Employment Tribunals, TUC, Citizens Advice Bureaux, the Equality and Diversity Forum and the Free Representation Unit. We hope now to build on this in further collaborative work on enhancing employment dispute resolution and raising workplace standards.

    The JUSTICE Working Party on judicial diversity, which included LEAD member Professor Rosemary Hunter, published its report 'Increasing judicial diversity': The report gave practical recommendations, exploring the structural barriers faced by women, people from visible ethnic minorities and those from less advantaged socio-economic backgrounds in reaching the bench. It also explained why diversity is a vital constitutional issue, calls for systemic changes to increase accountability and improve recruitment processes, and proposes more inclusive routes to the senior bench.
