Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Bull, we will recruit co-workers and create a culture that balance gender, age, and background. We listen to each other and respect different perspectives and views. We seek to understand before we act. We will speak up when we experience unpleasantness and discrimination based on religion, beliefs, ethnicity, gender, marital status, age, political opinions, and more.
Equity, inclusion, and diversity are always on our agenda. We are committed to:
increasing the presence of female attorneys in the leadership by 40 per cent
We have established a Partner Recruitment Committee and an assessment tool that contributes to reaching our goal on female presence in the leadership team. By the end of 2021, 39 out of 71 co-workers were women (55 per cent), and 32 were men (45 per cent). Amongst the partners, 30 per cent were women.
analysing the age gap in the firm
By using the same assessment tool as the Partner Recruitment Committee, we analyse the age gap in the firm. Among other things, we no longer include age information in our external communication in partner recruitment.
conducting insights on diversity
We do this to increase our knowledge on inclusion and integration and how we can attract more candidates with other cultural backgrounds, ethnicity or non-Norwegian legal backgrounds.
mapping internal salary levels
We regularly map the salary levels on the different roles and employee levels to secure an open and gender-neutral salary and promotion structure.
speaking publicly about diversity, equity, and inclusion.
In 2021, we launched «No Bull§hit», an honest podcast about equity, inclusion, and diversity in the industry. Furthermore, we actively participate in the industry debate about diversity in niche outlets such as Advokatbladet and Rett24.
An unpretentious podcast about equality and diversity
Many women leave the legal industry, resulting in a lack of competence. With the podcast Null Bull§hit, we want to help the industry change so that more women stay over time.
