If your company is one of many that signed on to ABA 113 – or you're someone who is serious about building a more diverse and inclusive team – this special session co-hosted by the ACC and Clifford Chance is not to be missed. 

Tiernan Brady is one of the world's most successful change agents, having led the winning marriage equality campaigns in both Ireland and Australia. Importantly, each nationwide victory was not achieved through a court ruling (as is the case in the US), but by a vote of the people. How did Brady accomplish it – and what lessons can you take from his approach to benefit your own organization?  

In 2019, Brady joined Clifford Chance as its Global Director of Inclusion. In addition to helping the Firm accelerate its own progress in this area, he was tasked by Firm leadership to use his expertise to assist clients and other organizations who share Clifford Chance's broad commitment to diversity and inclusion.  This is your opportunity to take advantage of insights that have prompted many to rethink their longstanding approaches to diversity and inclusion.    


Tiernan Brady is the Global Head of Inclusion. He is responsible for developing and implementing Clifford Chance's global inclusion policies and campaigns within the firm, with clients and in wider society.

Before taking up the role in Clifford Chance he was the director of the Equality Campaign, the successful Australian marriage equality campaign and political director of Yes Equality, the successful Irish campaign for marriage equality – the only two countries in the world to enact marriage equality by public vote.

He has served as the Director of Organization to the Irish Deputy Prime Minister (Tánaiste), Mary Coughlan, and as Mayor of his hometown of Bundoran in Ireland.  Tiernan is based in Clifford Chance's London office but regularly travels across the world, meeting with and advising the Firm's colleagues and clients.
