Sullivan-Willoughby unveils diversity and inclusion as a strategic approach for identifying systemic inequities and driving industry advancements
Singapore, Singapore Mar 10, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – Sullivan Willoughby, a leading international law firm that offers a full range of legal services, having a large scale, specialized expertise, standard management system, international presence, and a well-known brand, as well as an explicit shared values-based culture of client service and professionalism, today announced the release of its diversity report, underlining the company’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. According to the research, Sullivan Willoughby’s lawyer bench strives to be more flexible and diverse than industry standards.
The company’s dedication to diversity within its broader corporate employee and executive communities is also acknowledged in the report, recognizing that this commitment is a crucial requirement for performance, problem-solving, creativity, transformation, productivity, and sustainability. Sullivan Willoughby’s strategic paradigm for addressing systemic participation, employment, advancement discrepancies, diversity, and inclusion, is presented in the study.
As stated in the report, Sullivan Willoughby’s diversity principle is based on first benchmarking research that analyzes the firm’s diversity in comparison to industry counterparts and the larger business landscape. Diversity is both a basic internal ambition and a broader target aimed at amplifying change across the legal ecosystem.
“Sullivan Willoughby is widely regarded as a model of diversity,” stated Josef Hagen, General Counsel and Company Secretary. “We saw that the legal industry paradigm was affected a long time ago and there is a need for change. It is high time to admit the insufficiency of corporate diversity, even among those we hail as industry leaders, and the ineffectiveness of typical diversity programs to effect substantial change. The diversity and inclusion program we develop is an important step toward an essential change.”
Diversity is an important step toward conducting further in-depth data investigations, reviewing each step of Sullivan Willoughby’s operations, identifying and addressing impediments and stereotypes. The goal is to reboot the firm, incorporating diversity into its operational model, commercial processes, and the legal sector as a whole.
