Our awards

WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality

Allens is recognised by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency as one of Australia's employers of choice for gender equality.

The Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation was given to just 76 organisations in Australia that met the stringent criteria for best practice in promoting gender equality within their organisation.

Allens is committed to providing a safe and inclusive workplace where diversity, including identifying as LGBTI, is celebrated.

Allens is a proud supporter of marriage equality and assisted Australian Marriage Equality with its intervention in Commonwealth v Australian Capital Territory [2013] HCA 55, the High Court's decision recognising a Constitutional power to legislate on same-sex marriage.

Our LGBTI network, ALLin, provides opportunities for members to build relationships with each other, our clients and the wider community through events, network meetings and pro bono legal assistance on matters of interest to the LGBTI community.

In 2014, we were recognised as a finalist in the Australian Human Rights Commission awards for our assistance to A Gender Agenda – an organisation representing the diverse gender and intersex community in Australia – in NSW Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages v Norrie [2014] HCA 11. In that case, the High Court unanimously held that NSW laws permit the registration of a person's sex as neither male or female, but as a third 'non-specific sex' category.

At the GradAustralia Top 100 awards in February 2015, Allens was awarded the number two spot.
