Australia: Cooper Grace Ward recognised as Inclusive Employer by Diversity Council of Australia
Cooper Grace Ward Lawyers is proud to have been recognised as an Inclusive Employer for 2019-2020 by the Diversity Council of Australia (DCA).
The annual award recognises firms that are leading the way in the diversity and inclusion space.
The Brisbane-based firm participated in DCA’s Inclusion@YourWork Index, which measured diversity and inclusion in their workforce and compared findings to a DCA-Member Leading Practice Benchmark and a National Index Benchmark (derived from a nationally representative survey of 3,000 Australian workers).
The firm’s results exceeded the National Index Benchmark on at least five out of six of the following measures: Awareness; Engagement; Inclusive Organisational Climate; Inclusive Leadership; Inclusive Team; and Exclusion.
Commenting on the recognition, Cooper Grace Ward’s Director – People and Culture, Neil Baker said it reflects well on the firm’s strong focus on culture and values which are the foundation of the firm’s diversity and inclusion.
“The firm boasts a range of inclusion initiatives including an active diversity committee, wellness committee, LGBTIQ+ support group, and a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and I believe these along with the supportive leadership have contributed to us receiving this recognition from our own team via the Diversity Council of Australia inclusion at work index.”
“I’m also honoured to be acknowledged in the company of some of the most outstanding organisations in Australia, especially when this acknowledgement is from our own team.”
Cooper Grace Ward is pleased to commence 2020 with such great recognition and caps off a period of continuous recognition for the firm’s development initiatives, including recognition as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) for 2018/2019 and being a finalist in the Financial Review Client Choice Awards for 2019.
