Since our inaugural awards dinner in 1995, WLANSW has received the endorsement of the Law Society of NSW, the NSW Bar Association and the Department of Justice (NSW), and in 2009 the Australian Corporate Lawyer’s Association added their support and endorsement with our introduction of a new dedicated award for an “in-house” lawyer award category. The Workplace Gender Equality Agency also added their support and endorsement to our awards in 2007.
