Australia: Norton Rose Fulbright named in Top 50 Employers for Women 2015
Last Updated: 29 April 2015

Global legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright has been included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the third consecutive year.

The Times Top 50 Employers for Women, in partnership with Opportunity Now, evaluates the ways in which organisations support gender equality, diversity and inclusion, and enable women to achieve their full potential.

Norton Rose Fulbright conducts a number of initiatives aimed at encouraging a diverse and inclusive workforce and in 2012 launched its Global Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council (GDIAC). The purpose of GDIAC is to provide a source of co-ordinated and consistent leadership to establish and advocate diversity and inclusion best practice globally.

Sally Macindoe, global head of diversity and inclusion and chair of GDIAC, commented:

"Attracting, retaining and promoting female talent is critical to our business success and to delivering the best legal services to our clients. Through internal networks and groups, education, measurement and management, we work closely with our leaders and our people to support their careers and our business goals. We share best practice and collaborate globally to further develop our unified Diversity and Inclusion strategies and initiatives around the world."

Kathryn Nawrockyi, Opportunity Now Director, Business in the Community, said:

"Congratulations to Norton Rose Fulbright on being included in The Times Top 50 Employers for the third consecutive year. They have recognised that putting inclusive behaviours at the core of what they do and making gender equality a business priority not only benefits the women they employ, but also the organisation as a whole and the clients, customers and communities they serve. Their dedication and commitment to driving change should educate and inspire other employers to make a difference, whatever their size or sector."

Norton Rose Fulbright is committed to supporting gender equality and in 2014 announced its global gender diversity targets to be achieved by 2020:

  • to achieve 30% female representation on all Board and Management Committees globally
  • 30% female partners globally
