In particular, the group will look at improving diversity, gender equality and whether partners should be allowed to work part time.

The group will consist of senior partner, Tim Clark and partners Laura Carstensen and Frances Murphy. The same partners were involved with a submission to Denise Kingsmill’s ‘Report into Women’s Employment’, which looked at how to break the glass ceiling.

As part of Slaughter’s submission to Kingsmill, the firm committed to a policy review of women’s pay and employment. Management has since interviewed a range of external consultants to advise on the issue. Clark will now decide which consultant to use, or alternatively whether to keep the whole thing in-house.
