Annette Byron

Annette co-leads Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer’s Global Black Affinity Network and drove their 2019 Talent Meeting, bringing colleagues together for a programme of fireside chats, a diversity hackathon, panel discussions and networking, taking the resulting initiatives forward into action between the network and the firm’s wider management. She is the Partner Sponsor for Social Mobility, and she is on the firm’s graduate recruitment panel and the cross-function social mobility committee, helping those from underrepresented backgrounds thrive at the firm. Annette is the driving force behind the Freshfields Stephen Lawrence Scholarship Scheme, a recruitment, development and mentoring scheme run by volunteers from Freshfields and its clients. Until very recently, having served the maximum terms, Annette was Board Director of PRIME, the legal sector charity alliance between law firms committed to improving access to those from less socially mobile backgrounds.
