Investment Banks and Muppets

Another familiar story: some investment banks treat clients and employees like 'muppets'. Employees can be marched out of the building by security at 5 minutes notice - even longstanding employees who have been 'overly loyal' to their dysfunctional family - the bank.

Work/life balance in the legal profession

A recent surey by LexisNexis and the Law Society said that the level of commitment required to reach the very top of the legal profession makes it difficult to have a family. Around 80% blame the demands of the job for creating a poor work-life balance. With more women than men entering the profession why are less than 20% of equity partners women? Answer: pregnancy/maternity, the long hours culture and prejudice against flexible working.

Where are women equity partners in law firms: discrimination?

Recent research by Laurence Simons shows that only 16% of partners in Magic Circle law firms in the UK are female. Two thirds of female lawyers state their gender is a barrier to their success. This is no surprise and there have been a stream of articles in the Law Society Gazette (last one on 23 February).

WHY are there not more women equity partners

Let's start counting

According to Kira Cochrane the number of women we hear speaking on the Today programme as reporters or experts is typically 16-17%. Is this figure replicated in other workplaces? How to tell. Let's start counting - how many female directors, chief executives, partners, etc compared to men - and why? Just coincidence or sex discrimination?
