Kirsty Rogers, employment partner and head of DWF Manchester, was recognised in the Senior Equality & Diversity Champion category for her commitment to supporting and enabling gender-inclusive working practices and being a leader in driving DWF's diversity and inclusion agenda.

DWF was also recognised in the Agile Working category following its success in introducing agile working practices across its offices, enabled by investments in technology and modern office space, which is allowing its people to work more flexibly, efficiently and with better work-life balance.

Ty Jones, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility & Engagement at DWF, said: "This is a wonderful achievement which celebrates collective efforts from everybody at DWF to align what we do to our values which are to always aim higher, keep all promises, attend to details, disrupt to progress and be better together.

"As our international expansion continues to be driven by client need, we continue to grow our global diversity and CSR practices to benchmark our performance more widely, and we will work with our international offices to identify relevant opportunities aligned to jurisdictions which will help maintain our focus on inclusion, whilst enhancing our brand profile and credibility."
