A new survey of 68 NSW law firms has found just six have women chief executive officers. The NSW Women Lawyers’ Association found no firm had 50 per cent female partners, with the average sitting at 24 per cent. Of partners, 33 per cent of female partners worked part time compared with just 3 per cent of male partners.
The survey found men were not using parental leave “to any great extent” despite firms offering paid leave and formal part-time work arrangements.
