2017 was the year women’s workplace issues dominated the public conversation. As the year closed, the media spotlight was firmly focused on sexual harassment and the far reaching #metoo campaign. But it hasn’t just been about sexual harassment - the Hampton-Alexander review showed that women remain under-represented at senior levels across all sectors and the pace of change needs to be accelerated.
Over the years, a number public and private sector initiatives have failed to make the sort of lasting change that we would all like to see. We want to translate the impetus created by 2017’s media scrutiny into long-lasting improvement in women’s experience of work. We recognise that creating a lasting change requires a multi-disciplinary approach – focusing on separate legal, political, cultural and structural solutions is unlikely to lead to effective or sustainable outcomes.
Our roundtable is an opportunity for senior professionals in the legal sector to explore the issues affecting law firms and their female employees. We don’t have all the answers – but we hope this will be a forum to share thoughts and ideas (and successes) and the start of an open conversation about what we need to do to achieve lasting change.
