Aligned with the firm’s vision, Bowmans is building the pre-eminent African law firm, supporting its clients and its people, as they seek to unlock opportunity, overcome challenges and realise the hopes that will shape the future of Africa.
It is an inclusive firm guided by an agreed culture and values, and is committed to the principles of social and economic transformation and to cultivating an environment where diversity prospers.
The firm helps non-profit organisations so that they, in turn, can help others; collaborates with various organisations to aid small businesses and start-up; and makes a range of corporate social investments.
Bowmans commits at least ZAR 20 million per annum in pro bono legal services targeting inter alia (i) indigent and other vulnerable persons, and asylum seekers, (ii) gender rights, (iii) non-profit organisations and (iv) qualifying small business and start-ups.
Bowmans commits to donating ZAR 2.8 million per annum for each of the next three years towards supporting secondary schools in underrepresented and underprivileged communities and running a Bursary Programme open to university students.
Bowmans commits to advancing racial equity across racial and ethnic identities facing societal inequality and injustice by increasing the pool of law schools from which it recruits by 2023.
Bowmans is dedicated to responsible and ethical practices by requiring all employees to complete training relating to our Code of Conduct, Anti-Bribery and Corruption, Data Privacy, Insider Trading and Information Security policies annually.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism. Together, the collective action of Council members will contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable future for all people and our planet.
