We not only view diversity and inclusion in the workforce as part of our DNA but also as a call to action. What separates us from the pack is our commitment to advancing women into leadership positions. For example, our regional managing partner Hanim Hamzah, who is considered a legal pioneer according to Financial Times. Our partners Lilian Liew and Chin Sook Kwan were featured in IFLR1000’s Women Leaders Guide 2018 and Leoni Silitonga was awarded as Woman Lawyer of the Year. Overall, women constitute 52% of our total current workforce and over 54% of our leadership team.
What this means for our new recruits is that when you join ZICO, you become part of our diverse and dynamic young team that is not only gender inclusive, but consists of a variety of ethnic groups with the ability to speak a multitude of languages and dialects.
For our clients, this translates into us being at the confluence of new ideas and information as well as being able to offer advice imbued with refined cultural understanding; one of ZICO’s unique selling points.
