International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. Lily Montgomery, one of our Partners, lead a campaign asking our staff how they were choosing to challenge gender inequality this year, and we were proud to receive numerous photos from both male and female colleagues across the business.
Our Managing Partner, Andrew Rich, said “at HW Fisher, we will continually forge the positive visibility of women. We will do this not only by celebrating their achievements and contributions, but also by educating the leaders of our organisation, whether men or women to understand how inequality works, with the aim of making the firm more inclusive and defining more closely what standard is expected. Women undoubtedly play an equal part in making an organisation successful, and we are delighted to be appointing and promoting more partners which will strengthen our leadership. By making the firm an equal workplace, this will benefit the firm immeasurably.”
Russell Nathan, Senior Partner, agreed highlighting how “we are committed to effecting change at HW Fisher and ensuring that all employees have the some opportunities. As a business, we celebrate talent and enjoy working with our staff collaboratively to ensure that they reach their full potential. We believe in fairness and equity and recognise the benefits diversity brings to an organisation.”
