  • Does those awards take into account only the recruitment drive for gender equality or something more substantial?

    To what extent, the recruitment of people with disabilities figure within law firm's priority list towards diversity? if yes, are awards given on this basis ?

  • Diversity in the industry is dire so anything that moves the needle should be congratulated!

    Re Anonymous @ 11:33am, I wondered the same. The Lawyer states the following in relation to the GENDER equality award- "Submissions can relate to recruitment, client development or awareness training. The judges will be looking for evidence of the integration of diversity and inclusion into everyday organisational life and particularly welcome examples of senior level diversity champions who have made a significant contribution to advancing the diversity agenda within the firm. The organisation should illustrate how objectives have been met (or are on the way to being met) by supplying staff demographics."

    Congrats to Daniel and Laura for leading the Interlaw Diversity Forum to the LGB award! No doubt many gay folks in the legal sector will be applauding your efforts....in public or in private!

  • I was at the awards and the only visible diversity I saw were the ethnic minority waiters serving us!

    It is ironic to host a diversity awards ceremony full of non-diverse people, patting each other on the back on how great they are in ensuring diversity in the work place.

    If HR committees aren't diverse themselves or firms can't send a visibly diverse representation to these ceremonies, what are we exactly celebrating?

    There were absolutely no or negligible guests from ethnic minority backgrounds and not a single disable guest. Visible diversity is just as key to events like this.
