We are working hard to establish complete gender parity throughout the firm.
To that end, we have adopted several guidelines that have been shown to be effective best practices in combatting the inequities of leading organisations worldwide. One of the most recent is being an inaugural signatory to the Mansfield Rule, an initiative of Diversity Lab, an organisation that creates and experiments with innovative ways to close the gender gap and boost diversity in law firms, legal departments, and banks by leveraging data, behavioural science, and design thinking.
There are also many more under consideration and review, as we choose to adopt only those initiatives that are based on solid research and also support the core values that guide our firm:
Teamwork and respect
Innovation and improvement
All of these are consistent with the establishment of gender parity. We have seen improvement over the past five years, but we will not rest until the gender pay gap is zero.
