BBalanced is our gender-balance network, helping to support gender balance in our careers, looking at issues related to specific genders and helping to identify ways to improve gender balance in senior and leadership roles.

Key projects:

  • International Women’s Day Events: Each year, BBalanced celebrates International Women’s Day internally, covering themes, such as ‘Choose to Challenge’ and ‘Breaking the Bias’.
  • Career Focus Groups: BBalanced leads a number of career focus groups, focussing on the opportunities and barriers to progression within the firm. The research findings have been relayed to our senior leadership Gender Taskforce and are now being actioned.
  • Resources for Career Development: BBalanced creates resources to support both men and women in upskilling and developing their careers. So far, a range of topics have been covered, including imposter syndrome, confidence and parental leave.

What our people say...

Our BBalanced network brings people together from across our business. Offering opportunities for the open exchange of experiences and viewpoints within a supportive environment, it’s a joy to be part of.
Kate Redshaw, Senior Associate and co-chair of BBalanced
I encourage everyone to become a member of one or more of the BGroups. I have found being an active member of BBalanced enriches my career and experience at Burges Salmon; I get to champion a cause I care about, connect with others from across the firm and showcase the efforts of the creative BBalanced taskgroups. Advocating for gender balance empowers me in both my personal and professional life and I have found it to be a wonderful point of connection with both male and female colleagues. Your contribution to a BGroup can be as big or as small as you like, allowing you to easily fit it into your schedule.
