Last Updated: 3 November 2016

Holman Webb is proud to be a foundation signatory of the Law Society of NSW Charter for the Advancement of Women in the Legal Profession

The Charter was established 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 strategies are:

  • demonstrate leadership by implementing diversity and inclusion principles in the legal profession and removing gender bias and discrimination in the legal workplace;
  • drive change in the legal profession by developing a culture that supports the retention of women legal practitioners and recognises their value in senior roles;
  • implement recruitment and promotion strategies that include gender diversity as an important consideration, including ensuring equal pay for legal graduates within the same organisation regardless of gender;
  • promote and support mentoring and sponsorship of women in the legal profession;
  • encourage and support flexible work practices in the legal profession to assist men and women.

Holman Webb already has in place practices giving effect to the Charter's five strategies.

The partners of Holman Webb will continue their commitment to the advancement of women in the legal profession.
