Lawyers Weekly: What the gender pay gap looks like at Australia’s biggest firms

Hicksons is proud to be featured in a recent article from Lawyers Weekly as leading the way for gender pay parity across the legal sector. 
New data from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) confirms Hicksons has a 0% base salary and a 2% total gender remuneration gap. The article noted: ‘Hicksons have some of the best data’ and ‘…sits well below the legal sector average’, which is a testament to the firm’s approach to fostering a rewarding culture across the whole firm.

Consistent with Hicksons people-first approach, this result further recognises the firm’s achievement of gender parity at management level, as noted in the Australian Financial Review (December 2023).

Hicksons’ Managing Partner, Stewart Cameron shared: ‘Our people are the core of the business. I am delighted to see the firm continue to provide a supportive working environment for our people to grow and flourish’.
