Arthur Cox partner Rachel Hussey recognised in HERoes gender diversity list
Arthur Cox partner Rachel Hussey has been recognised in a list of 100 women who are leading by example and driving change to increase gender diversity in the workplace.
Ms Hussey, head of business development at Arthur Cox and founder of its Women in the Firm initiative, is the only Irish lawyer recognised on the global 100 Female Executives list compiled by HERoes.
Her initiative within Arthur Cox, set up in 2009, brought women partners together to formulate a strategy to empower women in the firm.
The initiative included training for women partners and associates on a range of subjects, as well organising talks and presentations by external speakers on key issues.
A third of partners at Arthur Cox are women and the firm appointed Orla O’Connor as its first woman chair earlier this year.
