Amy took over as Co-Chair of the UK arm of the Accelerate Gender Parity network in February 2021, and since then has implemented a number of initiatives including running an International Women’s Day month of events to drive forward discussions and educate colleagues on achieving cultural change; influencing the content of the firm’s new Code of Conduct, including principles around inclusive environments and respect for flexible working; and calling for enhancements to family leave/benefits, to embrace shared parenting culture. She also created a working group on work culture and campaigned to adopt true agile working. She was instrumental in establishing the firm’s principle of up to 50% home working, serving on the steering committee with senior management to drive through this cultural change, with the potential for generational impact. Since autumn of last year Amy has also been on the firm’s ESG Board and as an employment lawyer works with clients to maximise the impact of their own D&I work.
