Byfield Consultancy is thrilled to announce that it has been shortlisted alongside Funke Abimbola - award winning lawyer leading the legal team at Roche UK - for the Diversity & Inclusion Award category at the Law Society Excellence Awards.
This comes after our joint thought leadership report published in October 2015, 'Opening up or shutting out? Social mobility in the legal profession'. This report surveyed the Top 50 UK law firms on their approach to social mobility and diversity.
The report highlighted the persistence of gender and social imbalances in leadership positions across private practice law firms. However encouraging signs are coming from the legal sector trying to tackle these issues.
This is fantastic recognition of our agency's unique thought leadership research capabilities and our expert insight of the legal sector.
The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony on Thursday 20 October.
