Irish Law Society launches gender and equality taskforce
The Law Society of Ireland has launched a new gender, equality, diversity and inclusion task force.
It says the task force comprises sixteen members from various minority, disability, LGBT+ and socio-economic backgrounds.
"The Task Force will make recommendations to encourage more female solicitors and solicitors from diverse backgrounds to seek leadership roles in the Law Society’s Council and Committees.
"The Task Force will also create useful tools solicitors can use to help achieve equality, diversity and inclusion within their firms. The Law Society President Patrick Dorgan has made diversity and inclusion an important theme for his year in office."
Law Society Director General Ken Murphy says the Irish solicitors' profession is already leading the way to gender equality.
