Queensland Law Society

Equity and Diversity Award

Nominations are now open for the Queensland Law Society 2011 Equity and Diversity Award. The award aims to encourage all Queensland legal practices to promote staff diversity and accommodate lifestyle needs.

This is a wonderful opportunity for legal practices to demonstrate how they lead the field in best practice employment policies to build their position as an employer of choice. Achievement of this coveted award is also a great way to reinforce a positive culture within the workplace.

Any non-government legal practice in Queensland, including community legal centres, can nominate. Categories include:

  • Large Legal Practice Award - For legal practices with eight or more partners or principals
  • Small Legal Practice Award - For legal practices with less than eight partners or principals.

Judges will look for specific examples of employment equity, training that promotes workplace health and safety best practice, and a flexible work environment.

The Equity and Diversity guidelines provide more detailed information on judging criteria to enable completion of the application form.

All legal practices are encouraged to consider nomination and stand out from the marketplace.
