New Zealand Law Society launches Gender Equality Charter

12 April 2018 11:47 AM | Anonymous

While we recently reported the success of gender balance for lawyers in Victoria, New Zealand have taken this a little further by publishing a gender equality charter, which looks beyond the balance of numbers and asks why women are so far behind men in holding positions of seniority. The Charter asks signatories to undertake a number of commitments over a two year period and to report their progress to the New Zealand Law Society.
In Australia, we acknowledge that we still have 'way to go' to achieve proper gender equality - perhaps this is a good example?.
