Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Charter for the Advancement of Women in the Legal Profession Awards, King & Wood Mallesons (large law firm of the year), Holding Redlich (law practice of the year) and PepsiCo ANZ (Organisation employing in-house practitioners).
The Charter is designed to promote and support strategies to retain women in the profession over the course of their careers and encourage and promote their career progression into senior executive and management positions.
The signatories to this Charter agree to implement and commit to five strategies outlined within the Charter within two years of signing the Charter, with the exception of equal pay for graduates, which will be implemented within 12 months.
The Law Society's Annual Profile contains a demographic analysis of the solicitors in NSW. Information is drawn from two sources: the annual census data in the Law Society’s database and the annual survey completed as part of the practising certificate renewal process.
