  • Maternity coaching for maternity leavers is a proven retention strategy and I'm happy to say we provide this for both Allen and Overy and Ashurst. However on its own it could be viewed as a "Fix the Women" solution. Providing coaching for the managers of maternity leavers is about "Fixing the system" and can reduce significantly unconscious bias. This, unfortunately, happens less in law firms than in other companies due to the difficulties in identifying who the manager is. I do believe however that it is vital as it helps to change the culture more than coaching the women alone.
