We’ve made great strides over the past several decades in increasing the number of women in client service and leadership roles, including those in Forensic fields, such as Financial Crime Advisory, Discovery & Data Management, Legal Business Services, Investigations & Crisis Support and Disputes & Litigation. The gender gap is shrinking but we still have a long way to go, especially at the executive level.
The business case for diversity is crystal clear and we know organisations with women as part of their teams outperform and provide enormous advantages. Diversity of thought is crucial in forensic services explains Katie Jackson, “it creates a much broader range of opinions, perspectives and experiences to draw upon in order to arrive at the best answer and anticipate potential risks.”
We also know that how women respond to challenges and opportunities makes a difference not just with clients – but for their peers, network and communities around them. Juliana Sato explains that “one of the things I love most about the work we do is that we help others and prevent wrongdoing in the world”.
That’s why this campaign is so important and why we’re excited to share with you the stories of some of the world-class women from our global Forensic business. Women who bring with them a breadth of diversity across all dimensions. Through them, we help make a lasting positive impact for our firm, clients and communities.
So, get to know our women in Forensic, explore their stories, make connections and ask us questions!
