​​Webber Wentzel was awarded the Women Empowerment in the Workplace award at the 9th Gender Mainstreaming Awards on 9 September 2021- in both the unlisted and in the overall (listed and unlisted) categories.

The Gender Mainstreaming Awards recognise and acknowledge organisations that have advanced women in the workplace and successfully transformed corporate behaviour and practices through concerted strategic action.

Sally Hutton, Managing Partner, Webber Wentzel:

"We are very proud to be recognised at this year’s Gender Mainstreaming Awards. Our multipronged gender s​trategy has yielded significant results both for our firm and our clients. It also links directly to our firm's stated purpose – to have a transformative and sustainable impact through our work and actions".

Webber Wentzel's formal gender strategy was first adopted in 2015 and is designed to retain senior women and create a more gender inclusive environment. The results speak for themselves. Women comprise 60% of the firm, 43% of the partners and more than 40% of the firm's senior leadership team. The number of female equity partners in the firm has grown by 32% since 2015 when the gender strategy was first adopted.

The firm also focuses on countering gender inequities through its pro bono and CSI initiatives and its procurement policies.
