Panel discussion: How can law firms more visibly support working parents?

​The Executive Coaching Consultancy’s Parental Fog Index 2021 shows only a very small minority of the leading UK and US law firms and it discloses how they support working parents, at a time when working parents are experiencing sustained and intense challenges. Visibility of how a firm supports working parents is becoming increasingly important to many candidates when they are looking to move – it can be the difference between an offer being accepted or rejected.

We hosted an exciting online panel discussion with the Executive Coaching Consultancy, Allen & Overy, and Fladgate where we engaged in conversations about:

  • ECC's latest research, which discloses how UK and US law firms are supporting working parents and how visible their efforts are to prospective candidates.

  • We’ve heard first-hand from a recent lateral hire about their own experience

  • How Allen & Overy have been supporting working parents and the impact this has had on their recruitment

  • How different firms are communicating their inclusion policies to enhance their employer brand and attract talent

Meet our panellists:

Becky Morgan - Director, Hydrogen Group
Hannah Bradshaw - Executive Coach, ECC
Mark Hocken - Senior Recruitment Manager, Allen & Overy
Lara Ovenden - Senior Employee Relations Manager, Allen & Overy
Helen Cox - Partner, Fladgate
