Female Fraud Forum Webcast: Addressing the Gender Gap
Despite the fact that half of practising lawyers in the UK are women, 93% of law firms say the most highly compensated partner is a man. Throughout the profession, female lawyers continue to be significantly under-represented in positions of senior leadership.
Join the webinar on 2nd July 2020 at 5pm to discuss the extent to which conscious and unconscious bias affects the advancement of women to senior positions; what strategies women should use to bridge the current divide, and how incentives such as legal finance and the award structure of origination credit can help close the gender gap.
