Advancement of Women banner DIVERSITY

The Law Society has established a new Diversity and Inclusion Committee, comprising members of the Law Society who represent a wide cross section of the profession, including women lawyers, LGBT lawyers, lawyers of Asian heritage, lawyers with disabilities, and an Indigenous lawyer.

The role of the Committee is to promote diversity, equality and inclusion in the legal profession, in particular by progressing initiatives to ensure the equality of opportunity for all members of the profession, regardless of race, ethnicity, heritage, gender, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status.

While the Committee has a broad remit to deal with diversity and inclusion issues within the legal profession, its initial primary focus will be on the advancement of women in the profession.
