Supporting International Women's Day at Michelmores - #BalanceForBetter

At Michelmores, we are supporting the #BalanceForBetter campaign for International Women's Day 2019, a movement that calls for a more gender balanced world. As a business, we know that having teams which are diverse is crucial to our success – and plays an important part in helping us forge strong relationships with our clients. It is not just the right thing to do – it is also the smart thing to do.

The Firm launched the Women@Michelmores campaign in 2016, with the aim of achieving true gender balance across the Firm. We recognise that a shift is needed in the number of women in law, and also the number of women at partnership level. It has been widely accepted that there is a gap in numbers between men and women in the legal sector.

As part of our Women@Michelmores campaign we have a number of specific initiatives focused on attracting, developing and retaining the best talent from the widest possible talent pool.  We have been proactive in raising awareness, internally, of the potential barriers to female progression, and taken active steps to address these.

This short publication is intended to give a snapshot of how our people are embracing and supporting #BalanceForBetter. I hope you enjoy the publication.
