Best programme for leadership development- Bird & Bird Winner 2018

One of the biggest challenges faced by any professional services firm is achieving gender diversity within the partnership group.

Bird & Bird’s programme has been tackling this issue head-on since a pilot two years ago, and is now on to its second full programme. Importantly, the CEO has set a target of 50% female partners for the firm. The program has gone on to achieve national recognition.

The judges were impressed that the programme is both holistic and integrated, and goes beyond ‘training’ to employ elements such as: the establishment and nurturing of role models, creation of networks, and comprehensive communications.
