#EmbraceEquity this International Women’s Day 2023

News Mar 8, 2023

Every year on March 8, we come together as a firm and worldwide to celebrate International Women’s Day.

This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity. Equity is not something that we just speak about, but is something we need to live and value every day. Gender parity is one of our key EDI initiatives

McMillan supports the ongoing recruitment, retention and promotion of women lawyers and professionals; we continue to progress by offering an inclusive parental leave policy, creating our Wellness series and listening to the perspective of our many affinity groups.

We are proud to see a significant increase in the number of female partners and those holding management and leadership roles within the firm, including:

  • Executive Committee Members
  • Board of Partners
  •  Practice Group Leaders
  • Office Managing Partners
  • Chairs of our Partner Allocation Committee
  • Risk and Finance Committee
  • Strategic Planning Committee
  • Past CEO

Today we celebrate the great advancements women have and continue to make, but we won’t stop here. We recognize that we still have a long way to go before our world is free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination.
