The highly sought after citation, awarded to 119 recipients this year, recognises gender equality is increasingly critical to an organisation’s success and is viewed as a baseline feature of well-managed and leading organisations.
Maurice Blackburn is one of 19 law firms that received the citation this year. The accreditation is for workplace commitments in areas including leadership, learning and development, gender pay equity and flexible working arrangements.
“As a firm committed to fairness and justice for our clients, we are proud to be recognised as a fair and just place of work, especially for women,” says Maurice Blackburn CEO Jacob Varghese.
More than 77 per cent of the firm’s 1095 workforce are women, and 75 per cent of employees promoted in 2019 were women. At manager level, this figure rises to 80 per cent.
Among its many commitments to gender parity in the workplace, Maurice Blackburn:
“This is the first time the accreditation has been for a two-year period. We are delighted to have our efforts to date recognised, and we continue to work on ways to address the gender equality and pay gap where it still exists.”
