Ruth Grant, chair of our Global Diversity and Inclusion Committee, was named "Woman Lawyer of the Year" by the Law Society of England and Wales.
In addition to achieving professional excellence in her field, Ruth was selected for her role in opening doors historically closed to women and inspiring and influencing other female lawyers to pursue a career in law.
Over the last 10 years, Ruth has helped create a cultural shift in the firm through her work in diversity and inclusion and people development. She is a role model for diversity and gender equality internally and externally and actively promotes diversity and inclusion throughout the legal profession, including as a member of the Solicitors Regulation Authority's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
