Diversity & Equality

The Western Australia Bar is committed to diversity and equality both within and outside of the Bar.  That commitment is sought to be enacted by:

Endorsement of the Equitable Briefing Policy is an affirmation of the WA Bar’s commitment to a more equitable, diverse and inclusive Bar and profession generally.

Similarly, the WA Bar is committed to the Diversity and Equality Charter as a statement of principles to acknowledge publicly a commitment to diversity and equality by the Australian legal profession.

The WA Bar was the first Bar in Australia, and remains the only so far, to mandate Unconscious Bias Training as a compulsory part of our Bar Readers’ Course.  That training is also open to non-Readers.

The intention of endorsing and developing these and other initiatives is to continue to develop the Bar as a professional place where all of society is represented and can thrive.
