Improvements in Gender Equality statistics - a step forward for inclusion

Richard Pollins

Managing Partner

At DMH Stallard, we believe that everyone should have equal opportunities to succeed and thrive, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or any other aspect of their identity. We are proud that we have a workplace environment which is considered a great place to work by those who work in it, where contributions are valued and recognised, and one where we demonstrate a focus and commitment to improve our diversity and inclusion. 

We are pleased to announce steady improvements over the last few years around our diversity and inclusion. As has been common across the legal profession, historically we have seen an imbalance in our gender diversity especially at Partner level. We have worked particularly hard to improve the gender balance in our Partner level roles and are encouraged that this is now paying off with the percentage of female partners at DMH Stallard increasing over the past four years from 26.6% to 39.2%.

The increase in female Partners has been matched by a general increase in the representation of women in senior roles in the firm. 70% of our most recent senior promotional appointments were female.

Richard Pollins, Managing Partner at DMH Stallard said

“Our senior leadership, and every member of our organisation are committed to building on this success and continuing to promote equality and celebrate diversity.”

Amanda Smith, Director of HR at DMH Stallard said

“Although we have made progress, we acknowledge that there is still a way to go. We will continue to support women in the firm to progress their careers and manage any challenges by providing support with personal strategies to balance a successful and progressive career alongside family and other personal commitments.”
