InterLawADVANCE

Part of our mission at the InterLaw Diversity Forum is to support diverse talent along the career pipeline. Our research has shown that diverse talent faces increased challenges, and that the 'more boxes you tick' (i.e. intersectionality), the greater those challenges become.

 

To aid the career progression of talent (both lawyers and business services) from all strands of diversity and inclusion (including LGBT+, BAME, Disability, Gender, and social mobility), we will be working with select members and partners who want to reach the broadest applicant pool possible so that they can source the best talent for their organisations.

If your organisation is interested in participating, please contact:

Manager, international DEI - IOM

Our Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (GDEI) team is responsible for the enterprise-wide DE&I strategy and ensuring that each of the company’s global markets, across the three-legged stool, are supported in a culturally sensitive way that mitigates reputational risk. Advancing DEI is recognized as a business imperative, and as a result, there is an immediate need to support the three market segments: International Operated Markets (IOM), which are composed of wholly-owned markets, or countries in which McDonald’s operates restaurants,  International Operated Markets – Business Unit (IOM BU), which are composed of smaller markets that are wholly-owned, and International Developmental Licensed Markets (IDLM), which are markets where McDonald’s has licensed its franchising rights to strategic partners.

 

Reporting into the Senior Director for International DEI, three managers in newly built roles, one for IOM, one for IOM BU, and one for IDLM will work closely in a collaborative environment. 

The Manager in this role will be responsible for the International Operated Markets (IOM) segment (Australia, Canada, France, Germany and United Kingdom) and will drive the GDEI strategy in partnership with market leadership as well as with colleagues from across all corporate functions in the markets. The work will include assessing the markets’ DEI strategies against the GDEI enterprise-wide strategy and support the journey of each market to become an industry leader in the space. Additionally, the Manager will be responsible for assessing each market regarding how DEI present and use that data in conjunction with the strategy assessment to develop or enhance market-specific plans. Finally, once the markets have their plans, the Manager will assist the markets in activating the plans and monitoring progress.

trustee positions (2)

We are looking for two new trustees!

 

Sport is not just about keeping fit or winning medals. It has enormous value in terms of its outcomes: better mental health, life and job skills, employment pathways, crime prevention and more integrated communities.

 

We know what happens if you remove sport from young people: they suffer. 80% of young people have reported increased mental health challenges throughout the pandemic, yet 25% of young people who participate in community sport report less anxiety and increased confidence. Sport has a major role to play in helping us to Build Back Better. We know it's a very effective way to support young people. It's time everyone did.

 

We are particularly interested in hearing from individuals with experience in fundraising and commercial sponsorship, experience of working within or alongside government agencies or departments as well as individuals from the technology sector who have experience in social media analytics and metrics. No previous Trustee experience is necessary (though it may be advantageous), nor is experience in the world of sport itself.

Reporting into the Senior Director for International DEI, three managers in newly built roles, one for IOM, one for IOM BU, and one for IDLM will work closely in a collaborative environment.

 

The Manager in this role will be responsible for the International Operated Markets – Business Unit (IOM BU) segment (European markets except France, Germany and the United Kingdom as they are part of the IOM segment) and will drive the GDEI strategy in partnership with market leadership as well as with colleagues from across all corporate functions in the markets. The work will include assessing the markets’ DEI strategies against the GDEI enterprise-wide strategy and support the journey of each market to become an industry leader in the space. Additionally, the Manager will be responsible for assessing each market regarding how DEI present and use that data in conjunction with the strategy assessment to develop or enhance market-specific plans. Finally, once the markets have their plans, the Manager will assist the markets in activating the plans and monitoring progress.

The group incorporates a broad range of finance related practice areas including fund finance, structured finance, debt capital markets, restructuring and insolvency, real estate finance, acquisition finance, subordinated finance, corporate lending, loan investment, leveraged finance and speciality finance.

 

Our partner-led service enables our solicitors to learn and develop through working closely with a senior member of the team. Our size means that you will often be very close to the front line, gaining a greater insight into the issues facing our clients. You might be surprised at just how significant your contribution is.

 

We expect all our solicitors to work closely with clients and assume real responsibility, as well as to participate in client and business development activities. That means wider exposure for you.

UK Diversity fellowships

We are proud to offer Diversity Fellowships to outstanding university students intending to study for qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales.  Students who demonstrate a commitment to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion within their local communities and/or more broadly are encouraged to apply.

Award recipients will receive a paid Summer Programme position and a bursary of up to £12,000 to assist with university/law school tuition. 

This is a unique opportunity to gain valuable insights about a career in law with Cooley, with the opportunity to participate in Cooley’s Summer Programme a year sooner than students are typically eligible to participate. </
