Embracing Diversity: Our Commitment to the Halo Code
Celebrating Natural Hair and Cultural Identity
At Thompsons Solicitors, we believe in the beauty and strength of diversity. We are proud to announce our commitment to the Halo Code, a pioneering campaign that champions the right of every individual to embrace their natural hair and hairstyles in the workplace.
What is the Halo Code?
The Halo Code is more than just a policy; it's a promise to our employees and clients. It represents our dedication to fostering an inclusive environment where Black hair is celebrated, not discriminated against. This initiative protects and celebrates the right to wear all Afro-hairstyles such as Afros, braids, twists, cornrows, and locs. It's a stand against the unfair and often Eurocentric standards of professionalism that have long marginalised Black individuals.
- By adopting the Halo Code, Thompsons Solicitors pledges to:
- Champion Freedom of Expression: We recognise and respect the importance of hair in Black cultural identity and heritage. Our workplace is where everyone can feel confident and proud of their natural hair and hairstyles.
- Educate and Empower: We are committed to educating our team about the significance of hair diversity. We aim to dismantle stereotypes and biases associated with Black hair through open dialogue.
- Promote Inclusivity: Our policies ensure that no employee faces discrimination or bias because of their hair. We strive to create a culture that values and respects diversity in all its forms.
Why We're Proud to Support the Halo Code
At Thompsons Solicitors, we understand that embracing diversity is not just the right thing; it's essential for a vibrant, creative, and inclusive workplace. The Halo Code aligns perfectly with our values of social justice, equality, and empowerment. We are not just adopting a policy but embracing a movement that celebrates individuality and cultural expression.

We invite our employees, clients, and partners to join us in supporting the Halo Code. Together, we can create a more inclusive world where everyone has the freedom to express their identity and heritage proudly.
