Gender diversity is one of the legal sector’s most pressing issues. Join Kidd Aitken’s co-founder and director, Jacob Aitken, and leading talent management consultant, Kerry Jarred, for a timely discussion on gender diversity in the legal industry. Highlighting the current landscape and how we can build a more inclusive future.

Join us at 3pm BST on 31st March 2022 to learn more about the progress we have already seen and what more needs to be done to ensure that the industry is fair for all.

The relevance of this discussion has only increased in the wake of the pandemic. It has been reported that women have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic in their home and work lives, simultaneously juggling career and caring responsibilities. Worsening the imbalance in an already male-dominated industry.

In discussion

Following the widespread popularity of our white paper, Gender Diversity and Inclusion in Legal Directories, we are pleased to be continuing this important conversation.

During the webinar, we will discuss:

• What is the state of gender diversity in the legal sector?
• What initiatives can the industry implement to encourage greater inclusivity?
• How can firms reassure female talent entering the industry?
