The time has come for change: Dentons and Thomson Reuters team up to dismantle the ‘Merit Myth’

Sydney, Australia – Dentons and Thomson Reuters are hosting ‘The Great Debate, Courageous Counsel v Millennials: Dismantling the Merit Myth’ on Thursday, 1 March 2018.

The debate is part of #TRChangeMakers, a global Thomson Reuters initiative that brings together key business leaders, with the express purpose of galvanising individuals to make commitments and take action to improve the gender balance at the top of organisations.

More organisations are recognising the need to address gender inequality in the workplace and across the board there have been some gradual increases in the percentage of women on boards. Despite these ‘wins’, women remain under-represented in leadership positions. Underpinning this gender imbalance is the ‘Merit Myth’; with a focus on merit masking inherent gender inequality and unconscious bias that exists within many organisations.

Kara Baysinger, Dentons partner and co-author of the successful ‘Courageous Counsel: Conversations with Women General Counsel in the Fortune 500’, will kick off the event with three inspirational stories from women across different eras who successfully navigated the merit issues of their time and how having courage contributed significantly to their success.
