In honour of International Women’s Day and to raise awareness of its commitment to diversity, international legal practice Osborne Clarke is putting its women first on their website today.
Visitors to the website who search for a lawyer will see female lawyers first in the results – across any location, sector, service or position.
A promotional filter has also been added to the website, where visitors can view all 433 female Partners and lawyers who work at Osborne Clarke, which has over 500 people at its offices in Bristol’s Temple Quay.
Commenting on the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, #PressforProgress, Diversity and Wellbeing Manager at Osborne Clarke, Su Akgun said: “We wanted to find a unique way to shine a light on our female lawyers while embracing the spirit of progress. And we are, quite literally, putting our women first.”
Osborne Clarke’s International CEO Simon Beswick continued: “Our female lawyers are a big part of who we are and the service we provide to our clients.
“Celebrating them on International Women’s Day felt right, but in reality it’s a small component of our commitment to diversity. Having a supportive and inclusive culture is a key focus for us and is part of what makes working for Osborne Clarke so unique. As a firm, we know that a diverse business means better collaboration, highly effective problem solving and even more innovative thinking.
“Ultimately that’s what our people and clients expect from us and it makes our business even stronger. We are working to ingrain diversity into everything we do and we are committed to investing and retaining the best female talent.”
Osborne Clarke is hosting a number of events across its 25 international offices to honour International Women’s Day.
