This week it was announced that Ritu Sethi, Senior Partner & Solicitor for The Sethi Partnership Solicitors, has been shortlisted as a regional finalist in the Forward Ladies National Awards 2017, sponsored by HSBC.
The Women in Business awards are presented by The Forward Ladies Network, an organisation that has supported the development of women in the workplace since 1999. Forward Ladies works with some of the biggest names in business, including the likes of HSBC, Yorkshire Water, Sage UK, United Utilities and Hitachi Rail, to both support women in achieving their individual goals, and help companies achieve much-needed diversity in leadership and the wider business community.
The nomination represents the fourth awards shortlisting that the The Sethi Partnership Solicitors has received in the last two months, as the Firm has grown its staff roster and client service offering. The Practice was also recently recognised for excellence in the areas of Conveyancing and as an overall Legal Practitioner.
“It is a huge honour to have been nominated for such a well respected and important award,” said Ritu Sethi, Senior Partner and solicitor for The Sethi Partnership Solicitors. “This is not just recognition for myself, but the entire Firm, which is made up of mainly women and led by female partners. We will continue to support the growth of female talent and to champion gender equality throughout wider industry.”
Ritu is dedicated to supporting the development of women in business, and championing female equality both throughout the practice and in mentoring other businesses to help inspire and develop female entrepreneurship, which remains a crucial issue even into 2017. Her book, Having It All Now, was published in 2015 and offers practical tips for women looking for a greater work/life balance and a higher level of career success. We are extremely proud to have been awarded this nomination, along with the other recent recognition that the practice at large has received, and will continue to remain a vocal supporter of female development in business.
