"An absolute commitment to Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is at the heart of our firm strategy, and resonates strongly with me on a personal level. For me it comes down to a fairly simple equation: when our people thrive and flourish, so do we as an employer and as a business. Ensuring our firm is a safe, productive and positive place to be for ALL our people means better outcomes for our individuals, our business and our clients. There is only upside to a concerted and genuine focus on creating a diverse and inclusive work environment."
Michael Greene, Managing Partner, HDY
Ensuring our workplace is an environment where people feel able to be themselves and offer their varied views and experiences is not only the right thing to do – it also enriches our firm culture, the experience for all our people working here and the experience our clients have working with us.
TogetherHDY is the umbrella brand for all the varied D&I initiatives and programs at our firm. TogetherHDY goes to the heart of what the principles of diversity and inclusion mean for us: regardless of individual differences, we come together to support each other as one team, one firm. A variety of opinions, ideas and perspectives that are welcomed makes for better outcomes.
We were recently awarded Employer Program of the Year for our Diversity and Inclusion Program, TogetherHDY at the Lawyer's Weekly Australian Law Awards, a great testimony to our commitment and best practice initiatives in this space.
