Host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by nrol director Jesse Shah to discuss gender-based recruitment issues across various sectors, his perception of such issues as a male recruiter, what concerns him about the experience of women seeking new roles in the legal profession, and why supporting the Women in Law Awards as principal partner is so important to nrol.

Mr Shah also argues for the need for the legal profession to not be complacent in the push for parity, whether female candidates are increasingly seeking out employers with favourable workplace policies and family incentives, how his firm is ensuring that women are being put forward to prospective employers, whether employers are meeting recruiters halfway on such a push, and why it is so critical for recruiters to push back on unconscious bias.
