Gender Pay Gap report 2019

You can find our 2019 Gender Pay Gap Report in the link on the right-hand side of this page. Below, Non-Executive Director, Christina Blacklaws introduces the report;

“It was my pleasure to accept the offer to join the Anthony Collins Solicitors (ACS) Board as Non-Executive Director last year. I have enjoyed being part of a dynamic, socially-motivated, and growing firm with a diverse workforce and a passionate partnership, nearly 40% of whom are female. As someone with a long-term commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) in the legal sector I am pleased to see a proactive ED&I strategy implemented here and ongoing work to build a strong and inclusive culture. Some of the highlights for me last year included enhancing our maternity and shared parental leave pay and hosting the 100 years of Women in Law panel, celebrating the history and present and looking forward to the future for female legal professionals.

We are disappointed to see that our mean gender pay gap has increased slightly this year and we recognise that we are a long way from where we want to be. We can identify the reasons for the gap (as explained in this report) and know that closing the gap is a long-term endeavour to which we are committed. While women are well represented in the firm as senior lawyers, we need to create a greater balance of men and women at all levels across the firm. We will be driving more change this year, not least to our family-friendly working practices, and embrace the challenge that there is much more we need to do. I am excited by the proposals and confident that ACS is committed to a future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.”
