Slaughter and May lawyers named in Heroes Role Models Lists 2023

Slaughter and May is pleased to announce that two of its lawyers feature on this year’s Heroes Role Model Lists. Published annually by INvolve, the lists showcase and celebrate global business leaders who are driving change in the workplace and inspiring the next generation of diverse talent.

Partner Jane Edwarde and PSL Tanja Velling feature on the 100 Heroes Executive Role Model and 100 Heroes Future leader Role Model lists respectively. The awards recognise the individuals who are elevating and enabling women in business and driving change for gender diversity.

Diversity and inclusion is a priority for Slaughter and May, and in addition to setting gender, ethnicity and social mobility targets, the firm has invested in initiatives such as external and internal mentoring opportunities at all levels to promote gender diversity, which is part of its partner-led action plan towards gender equity. The firm’s employee Gender Equality Network, GEN, continuously raises awareness on issues around gender equality.

Slaughter and May Managing Partner, Deborah Finkler commented: “As a firm we are committed to gender equality, inclusion and creating an environment where everyone can feel valued, included and able to achieve their full potential. I am delighted to see both Jane and Tanja recognised for the work that they do which is vital to improving representation at the firm and across the sector in general.”

Founder and CEO, INvolve, Suki Sandhu OBE, says: I’m so thrilled to be celebrating our 2023 Heroes Role Models, a global group of trailblazing Executives, Future Leaders and Advocates driving change for women in business. All the individuals within these lists are championing inclusion and leveraging their experience and knowledge to drive impactful initiatives and strategic change within their organizations. Its vital that women across the global organizations can succeed and achieve career success, and these Role Models are essential drivers of change who are smashing barriers to progress. We could not effect change without them leading the way.”
