The Law Society and the InterLaw Diversity Forum established a formal partnership in autumn 2018 to collaborate on a Gender Equality Initiative, a space where we could share learning, build best practice, and work together to advance gender equality in the legal profession. 


The Gender Equality Initiative produced a series of events which focused on supporting individuals by offering networking opportunities, awareness-raising events, and skill-building sessions.

The Gender Equality Initiative concluded in summer 2019, and the the InterLaw Diversity Forum will be launching our new Women's Network in early 2020.

Write a BBC 50:50 Equality Project: Legal Sector Launch

12 Nov 2020

The 50:50 Project inspires and supports content-makers to represent women and men equally. It is the BBC’s biggest ever collective action to increase women’s representation in its content. The initiative, born in the BBC’s London newsroom, uses a methodology that is rooted in data, creativity, practicality and passion to fundamentally shift representation within the media.


In May 2019, the BBC committed to making that action global. This grassroots initiative has now grown to include more than 75 other organisations in 22 countries – across media, academia, communications and business.


The InterLaw Diversity Forum is now teaming up with the BBC’s 50:50 Equality Project in the legal sector to promote women’s equality through their proven and effective 50:50 methodology.


Please join us as we explore the programme with professionals and experts from the BBC, as well as External 50:50 Partners from other sectors who will share their successful application of The 50:50 Project to advance women’s equality in their businesses.
