The power of diversity at MinterEllison comes from the unique contributions of our people. We recognise that personal background, ethnicity, gender identity, age, faith, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, disability and family structures shape who we are and how we think.
Our commitment to building and embedding an inclusive workplace is about recognising the unique contributions of our people and creating an environment that enables them to thrive.
In 2018, the firm was recognised as a Silver Employer in the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) for LGBTI Inclusion. Our goal is to become a Gold Employer of Choice by 2020.
It's important that our people come to work without feeling the need to hide their gender identity, sexual orientation or gender expression from colleagues or clients. We truly believe this enables our people to be at their best, work to their strengths and bring value to our clients.
