At Gowling WLG we believe that diversity and inclusion makes us a stronger business - more relevant and valuable to our clients, more empowering for our people, and more engaged with our wider communities.
We celebrate different cultures, backgrounds, perspectives and experiences - something we reflect in one of our three global values: 'we all bring something different'.
We support the UK government's focus on gender pay gap transparency to highlight areas of potential unfairness -accelerating everyone's efforts to address the inequalities of the past and to deliver lasting change in the workplace and society.
With this in mind, we have again expanded our 2019 reporting beyond the statutory requirements. Our 2019 report includes:
- Our statutory gender pay gap.
- Additional voluntary data on our gender pay gap showing our partner gender pay gap and total gender pay gap (consolidating employee and partner data)
- Additional voluntary data on our ethnicity pay gap - our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) pay gap.
- Additional voluntary data on our sexual orientation pay gap - reporting for the first time our Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual (LGB) pay gap.
We remain confident that we offer equal pay for equal roles and performance - we are committed to promote a workplace in which everyone is free to develop and progress to the best of their abilities. With this in mind, we have extended our programme of activity to support our progress in the coming years, something we cover in detail at the end of this report.
I confirm that the data reported is accurate.
