We are happy to announce we have signed up to the Gender Equality Charter. The Charter is a set of commitments aimed at improving the retention and advancement of women lawyers. Charter signatories are asked to meet these commitments over a two-year period and report on progress to the New Zealand Law Society.

By signing up to the charter, signatories commit to:

  • Lead from the top,
  • Make a plan and take action,
  • Measure progress.

The specific commitments include tackling unconscious bias, encouraging flexible working, closing the gender pay gap and promoting equitable instructions.
