Posted: 08/03/2019

WendyBenjamin 2019Appleby used International Women’s Day to announce the global extension of its Female Leaders Network, which was launched in Jersey in 2017 and is led by Managing Partner Wendy Benjamin (pictured). 

The network will be growing to include the Bermuda, BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Hong Kong and the Isle of Man, with female Partners and employees across the jurisdictions supporting the initiative.

The group meets regularly to discuss topics such as diversity and how to develop talented women within an organisation.

Wendy Benjamin commented: “I am really proud of the Female Leaders Network and the work we are doing to celebrate and promote diversity in the workplace, particularly in the boardroom, where we know women are less represented.”

Faye Moffett, Managing Partner for the Isle of Man office, added: “As a firm that has a global network which spans 10 jurisdictions, we are a naturally diverse organisation. Females account for more than half of the business as a whole, which is similarly reflected across our senior lawyers and other leadership positions.”

Four out of Appleby’s 10 offices have a female Office Managing Partner.
