TLT has been awarded with a bronze accreditation from Diversity Mark NI, in recognition of the firm’s commitment to diversity & inclusion.
Christine White, Head of Business at Diversity Mark, said:
“TLT’s application clearly met the standard for this accreditation with strong leadership and creative data-driven targets to assist them in building an inclusive workplace to benefit all employees.”
The firm has also achieved re-accreditation with Bristol Women in Business for another year, following TLT’s commitment as a founding signatory in 2019. The Charter recognises and supports the work of Bristol Businesses to create workplaces that are gender equal, and the reaccreditation recognises the firm’s progress over the last year.
TLT completed the hat-trick with a win at the Legal Island NI Equality and Diversity awards, noted as highly commended in the ‘Best Gender Initiative’ category. The award recognised the work of the firm’s Women’s Network in empowering female employees to achieve their full potential, with the aim of achieving gender diversity at all levels of the firm.
Esther Smith, TLT’s diversity and inclusion champion says:
“Taking part in initiatives such as the Women in Business Charter and Diversity Mark mean we can work toward common goals alongside other businesses that share our ambition for improvement.
“We’re thrilled to have achieved the bronze accreditation with Diversity Mark NI and will strive for progress towards achieving reaccreditation next year, with the aim of applying for a silver award in 2022.
“We are continuing to drive change across the business, through our delivery of unconscious bias training, building on flexible working arrangements with tech-led solutions, supporting access to the legal profession through social mobility initiatives, and through the firm’s Women’s Network.”
