24 February 21 - Media Release
National commercial law firm Holding Redlich has today been announced as a 2021 Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the Federal Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).
This is the 13th consecutive year that Holding Redlich has received the citation and is high-level recognition of the policies and practices in place at the firm that are dedicated to improving diversity and gender equality.
A lengthy and detailed submission process is required each year by applicants who must outline and quantify precisely what has been done - and what they intend to do in the future to further encourage gender equality and diversity in their workplace.
Holding Redlich National Managing Partner, Ian Robertson, said the WGEA award is pleasing recognition that the firm’s ongoing work in this area continues to have a positive impact. “We are very pleased that Holding Redlich has again received this important, high-level citation,” Ian said.
“Our firm takes our commitment to having no gender inequality and supporting diversity very seriously.
“I am also particularly pleased that our gender pay equity audit for 2020 revealed that we now have a gender pay gap of 0.13% (in favour of females) for legal employees. This is well below the industry average, which is about 20% in favour of males,” Ian added.
