The Clifford Chance Careers Podcast

Our experts from around the firm discuss career advice and give unique insights into their personal journeys.

The firm's network for advancing race equality and celebrating heritage, the UK REACH Network, presents the Celebrating Culture podcast series. Our aim is to celebrate and highlight the cultures that make us who we are and that shape the diversity of experiences and voices at Clifford Chance. In each episode, we focus on a cultural celebration, festival or event and we explore the historical context that has led to the different ways that we celebrate different parts of our firm's culture.

In this episode, Maxine Purcell, Resource and Business Process Manager, speaks with two members of the Clifford Chance Islamic Community; Faeezah Tailor, an Associate from our London Corporate M&A practice and Asna Khan, Communications and Marketing Specialist from our New York office. They discuss the Islamic Celebration of Eid Al Adha, one of two major holidays celebrated worldwide each year and also provide a valuable insight into the significance of the holiday. They also share how they personally celebrate Eid Al Adha and how COVID-19 has impacted this.
