Building a diverse and inclusive workplace is a strategic priority, with a number of initiatives developed to improve and build on diversity, such as support for colleagues returning to work following parental leave. The firm holds the Gold Standard Award from the Irish Centre for Diversity in recognition of its development and implementation of people-focussed D&I initiatives. It was the first organisation in Ireland to receive this award and is the only Irish law firm to have received D&I Gold accreditation. This year, Matheson launched its Impactful Business Programme, bringing its existing, D&I, CSR, Environmental Sustainability and Arts activities into one dedicated programme. In June 2021, Matheson’s female / male partner gender ratio was ranked the fifth most gender-diverse in Europe, and first in Ireland, by The Lawyer in its European 100 report.
