Our judges were blown away by the work this organisation is doing and by the clear evidence of impact in their submission. There were many impressive points including: being the first law firm in Ireland to receive the Gold Standard from the Irish Centre of Diversity; their development and implementation of people focused DE&I initiatives; the requirement of all partnership candidates to evidence their commitment to DE&I; the detailed actions taken to de-bias HR processes; their development and approach to wellbeing and mindfulness; their disability engagements; and their data on their summer internship programme which showed gender balance perspectives considered in recruiting candidates. This organisation is the fifth most gender diverse legal firm in Europe and the first in Ireland for percentage of female partners with strong data to back up results. They are doing incredible things to be an example for the sector and beyond.
