Award spotlight: QLS Equity and Diversity - Equity Advocate Award

The Equity Advocate Award recognises the promotion of equity and diversity in the Queensland legal profession. The award is open to individuals, in-house legal teams, government lawyers, private firms or community legal centres who have promoted equity and diversity in the legal profession through effective and innovative initiative(s) within the workplace to generate positive change.

Last year’s winner of the Equity Advocate Award winner, Linda Ryle, believes winning the award provided opportunities to share important messages around the experience of First Nations People, bringing attention to their often unrecognised contributions and often dismissed perspectives. Read here why lawyers should support a diverse profession and nominate for this year’s award.

Nominations close on Friday 2 February and winner will be announced at the 2018 QLS Legal Profession Dinner & Awards on Friday 9 March.
