Gilbert + Tobin has been recognised for its commitment to gender equality with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) naming the firm among the list of best practice Australian employers.
This is the fourth consecutive year Gilbert + Tobin has received the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation, reflecting the continued progress the firm is making in supporting women at all levels of the organisation and building an inclusive workforce.
Gilbert + Tobin’s Managing Partner, Danny Gilbert said he was delighted to see G+T’s ongoing commitment to gender equality and diversity recognised alongside other leading organisations.
“Our firm has a long and proud history of celebrating diversity and advocating for equality. We are honoured to continue to be recognised as a WGEA Employer of Choice and we remain committed to playing a leading role in achieving gender equality in Australia.
While we are making good progress, we know we have more to do to ensure G+T is a place where both men and women can build rewarding careers for the long-term – a focus that our new Diversity Council will take forward in 2018 and beyond.”
Gilbert + Tobin Partner and Chair of G+T’s new Diversity Council, Hiroshi Narushima, said the firm will continue to take the action necessary to drive real change.
“We recognise a diverse and inclusive workforce is a key business imperative and we are taking action in a number of areas to achieve our vision. Increasing opportunities for women across our firm continues to be a focus within our broader diversity agenda and we are looking at stepping up our progress in the coming year.”
Gilbert + Tobin is a major sponsor of the Diversity Council of Australia.
Gilbert + Tobin’s Diversity and Inclusion statement
“We believe that diversity is powerful. It creates a safe place where everyone is valued and can contribute. It helps us to live well. It means we understand and better engage with our clients and our community. It improves performance and helps us to think creatively.
We expect our firm, in all of its parts, to be a safe, diverse and fun place to be – where our people are free to be themselves and are able to meaningfully participate.
We are a community that enjoys celebrating the things that make us different as well as those things that we share in common.”
