McCullough Robertson recognised as Inclusive Workplace Champion
6 March 2015
The winner of the 2015 Hunter Diversity Awards Inclusive Workplace Champion is leading independent Australian law firm, McCullough Robertson.
Committed to providing a rewarding workplace for all their employees, McCullough Robertson empowers their staff to balance the demands of work and other commitments.
Jeremy Kennedy, McCullough Robertson Partner in the firm's Newcastle office said, ‘We are committed to gender equity. It is critical for achieving sustainable business performance in a dynamic and changing world. It means valuing each and every employee, and shaping an environment where true talent shines’.
In 2014 the firm launched the Sky Program, a framework for diversity initiatives including a commitment to education, conduct, and inclusion and employee behaviour. The judges commented this innovative submission was of very high quality, featuring true inclusion statistics quoted by McCullough Robertson’s staff.
The Hunter Diversity Awards is an initiative of the Equal Futures Project, a local organisation dedicated to awareness and raising funds to facilitate gender equity in our region, nationally and internationally.
The inaugural 2015 Awards will recognise and celebrate diversity champions among us -‐ those who have discovered what works in making their organisation and/or community a fairer, more equitable and more successful place to live and work.
