All Rise is a project inviting the Bar to step up and actively create a better culture for all barristers. The aim of the project is to encourage 25% of barristers to be active bystanders against bullying, belittling and bad behaviour – inviting the Bar to step up and actively create a better culture for all barristers.
The initiative is headed by four barristers – Morayo Fagborun Bennett (Hardwicke), Bo Kay Fung (Financial Conduct Authority), Chris Gutteridge (Exchange Chambers) and Lydia Pemberton (3 Paper Buildings) – who met on the Bar Council’s Leadership Programme.
The team have designed and produced a pin badge that barristers can wear in chambers or at their place of work and at court as a symbol of allyship. The pin badges are wooden, environmentally friendly, and come on a recycled cardboard backer that can be re-used as a bookmark.
Donations can be made at the group’s Open Collective page here.
Please contact Morayo if you have any questions about the initiative.
