Diversity & Inclusion

Turks is committed to diversity and inclusion as we recognise the differences among us as a source of strength and instrumental to our success.

We are proud to be one of three national finalists in the 2021 Lawyers Weekly LGBTQI+ Champions of Pride Awards and to be listed in the top ten firms in Australia for Female Partners by the Australian Financial Review (AFR). 

Turks is also certified as fully compliant with the requirements of the Federal Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) and is a signatory of the Law Society Charter for the advancement of women in the legal profession.

To foster understanding and education, we run six monthly 'Inclusion Matters' seminars for our staff and clients on important social matters. Recent seminar speakers have included The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG, Human Rights barrister, Kate Eastman AM SC, The Hon. Julie Bishop, Mental Health Advocate and Winner of the 2016 Indigenous Human Rights Award, Joe Williams, and Paralympic Gold Medallist, Annabelle Williams.
