Colin has implemented an aspirational target that women will make up 30% of all their Managing Associate and partner promotions each year. He has also amended the Partner Remuneration process to ensure a greater emphasis and accountability for people development. Colin was central to setting up the mentoring scheme, in which all Managing Associates are matched with a partner sponsor who acts as a guide to support and champion them in the workplace. He currently has two mentees, one female and one male, and is focused on providing them with equal opportunities. Externally, the firm is involved with a sector-wide female mentoring scheme, and Colin volunteered to be one of three senior mentors. He is also involved with external diversity committees, and ensures that gender diversity is always on the firm’s agenda.
