Our Inclusion and Diversity Council is chaired by our Managing Partner and oversees Allens’ inclusion and diversity strategy and progress. Our career model, policies and initiatives - including our approach to flexibility and Women at Allens Program - have all been developed with an emphasis on the engagement, career and professional development and promotion of all our employees. Our LGBTI network, ALLin, provides opportunities for members to build relationships with each other, clients and the community through events and pro bono legal assistance on matters of interest to the LGBTI community. In 2016, we were named by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (the twelfth consecutive time we have been awarded this citation) and were recognised as a Silver Employer for LGBTI inclusion in the Pride in Diversity 2017 Australian Workplace Equality Index. We support marriage equality and were also one of the first organisations in Australia to become a signatory to the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles. Allens maintains the highest ethical standards and takes a zero tolerance approach to discrimination, harassment and bullying in the workplace. Our Equal Employment Opportunity, Bullying and Harassment Policy is supported by a Grievance Policy and access to a free, independent and confidential counselling service for all staff and their immediate family members. The firm has an Anti-Corruption Policy and a Fraud Prevention Policy. The firm’s Office of General Counsel also provides guidance and training to staff. When purchasing goods and services, Allens takes into account the environmental, social and ethical credentials of suppliers and encourages our suppliers to adopt practices to minimise their impacts. We also look for opportunities to increase the diversity of our supply chain. Through our RAP, and as a member of Supply Nation, Allens supports and seeks to engage new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suppliers. The firm also has an Equal Opportunity Barrister Briefing Policy to encourage briefing practices that promote gender equality in the legal profession. ALLENS
