Gender balance plan by law firm
International law firm Pinsent Masons whose Belfast office employs around 100 people, has launched 'Project Sky', a programme aimed at improving the gender balance in the partnership and senior leadership team.
Project Sky seeks to remove barriers to the progression of women to the highest levels.
It aims to ensure women will make up 30% of the firm's partnership, with a first milestone of reaching 25% by May 1, 2018.
The project will involve initiatives to promote more transparent career development, greater accessibility to flexible working, more structured support around parental leave and training to identify subconscious bias.
