As part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion, leading business law firm Hall & Wilcox has launched its inaugural “Inclusion Series” events, with the first event featuring the Victorian Pride Centre and Stand Up Events.
Hall & Wilcox Managing Partner, Tony Macvean, commented that “the inclusion series is an opportunity for the firm to champion and support our diversity and inclusion agenda, as well as facilitating a conversation about diversity and inclusion issues amongst our people.
“Diversity and inclusion is fundamental to the success of our business and in enabling our people, our clients and our community to thrive.”
In the panel discussion, James Morvell and Francesca Lai (Hall & Wilcox) were joined by panellists Stephen Barrow (Victorian Pride Centre Director and Deputy Chair), Ro Allen (Gender & Sexuality Commissioner) and Angie Greene (Stand Up Events CEO). Panel participants shared insights into their important work and ongoing roles to engage the community, organisations and individuals in achieving equality, diversity and inclusion.
“At Hall & Wilcox, diversity and LGBTIQ inclusion is supported at all levels across the firm”, Tony explained. “Our culture supports and enables our people to bring their whole self to work. We are also delighted to be a pro bono partner of the Pride Centre and being involved in its establishment in August this year. We were very honoured to have such a great panel join us for a terrific, thought-provoking lunch.”
