Swaab ranked amongst the high­est on part­ner­ship gen­der equality

In a fea­ture of The Aus­tralian ear­li­er this week, the find­ings of the 2022 Aus­tralian Part­ner­ship Sur­vey con­duct­ed by Eaton Strat­e­gy + Search, were pub­lished. The sur­vey revealed gen­der equal­i­ty with­in Aus­tralian law firm part­ner­ships. Swaab was ranked an impres­sive sec­ond place with 50 per cent of equi­ty part­ners being female.

The sur­vey high­light­ed the num­ber of female equi­ty part­ners in Aus­tralian law firms still hov­er around on aver­age 27 per cent. Swaab’s Man­ag­ing part­ner Mary Digiglio said,​“We have been able to achieve this bal­ance of gen­der equi­ty organ­i­cal­ly, with­out the need for quo­tas using a mer­it based sys­tem that recog­nis­es an indi­vid­u­al’s per­for­mance and cul­tur­al fit. This also extends to our FTE part­ners where 40.28 per cent are female, well above the aver­age of 31.9 per cent.”
