A diverse workforce plays an essential part in helping us achieve both our business objectives and competitive advantage.
Diversity at Norton Rose in Australia is about delivering an environment in which every employee can pursue and realise their career ambitions on the basis of merit and skill.
We are committed to providing equal opportunities in employment and to providing a workplace which is free from discrimination and harassment. This means that all applicants, employees and partners receive equal treatment regardless of race, colour, ethnic or national origins, sex, marital status, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
To ensure the continuous promotion of our diversity at work policy, we have diversity and inclusion committees representing every office. These committees review the work being undertaken within the diversity arena and ensure that we promote and manage a culture which values the differences that all employees and communities bring to our business.
In November 2011 Sally Macindoe, partner and chairman of the Norton Rose Australia Partnership Council was named Diversity Leader for the Advancement of Women in the Workplace, by the Australian Government’s Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency. Sally oversees the development and execution of the firm’s diversity strategy which has, among other things, seen Norton Rose in Australia double the number of women working flexibly and more than double the number of women at partnership level.
