TALENT & DIVERSITY
Australia is culturally and socially diverse and this needs to be reflected in the legal profession. In fact, research by the Law Society suggests that diverse workforces that include people with global experience and multicultural identities display more creativity and are better problem solvers. The research goes on to say that promoting diversity and inclusion dramatically reduces the risk of breaching existing legislation.
This conference will focus on best practices in talent management and diversity in the legal profession.
