Seema is one of just thirteen female partners at the highest tier of DWF, and she is the first person from an ethnic minority to hold this position. Seema is also a Partner Director on DWF’s Plc Board. Over the past two years Seema has grown the D&I Leadership Group into a global group with over 50 members across all DWF’s offices. She has pioneered D&I best practices, such as the implementation of blind CVs and inclusive hiring training, to increase the recruitment of underrepresented groups. In addition, she has designed and obtained board approval for gender and ethnicity targets for the Plc Board, the Executive Board and the senior leadership team. For her intersectional approach to advancing women’s careers, Seema’s gender equality roundtables were recognised by The Times Top 50 Employers for Women report, and in March 2021 she was invited to speak at the United Nations live conference ‘Target Gender Equality, Target Ethnic Diversity’.
