Queensland Law Society

When a team includes people of different genders, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds and orientations, it produces more creative, innovative and effective results; but diversity doesn’t just happen on its own: Employers need to actively seek and recruit candidates from a variety of backgrounds to ensure they’re not inadvertently creating a homogenous workforce and employees need to feel comfortable bringing their authentic self to work. This is easier said than done.

The Asian Australian Lawyers Association (AALA) has partnered with QLS to present a panel of employers, employees and recruiters as they share the lessons they have learned and practical steps you can take as an employer, employee and legal professional to encourage and support diversity in the legal profession.

Peppercorn Recruitment is proud to be partnering with the Queensland Law Society and Asian Australian Lawyers Association in a panel discussion on diversity in the legal profession. Peter Liaw will be a panel member sharing his insight into diversity trends in the legal industry.
