International law firm Pinsent Masons has won InterLaw's Apollo Project Award 2016 for its Supporting Modern Families Initiative.

The firm was recognised for the programme, which forms a crucial part of its diversity and inclusion scheme.

The initiative is designed to support employees with families while away and upon return from family leave and includes a range of schemes including reciprocal mentoring, regular webinars and coaching sessions.

InterLaw Diversity Forum’s Apollo Project is a cross-industry organisation which strives to improve workplace culture to create a level playing field for all working in the legal profession.

Family Support Network chair at Pinsent Masons, Kizzy Augustin, said: "The firm's Supporting  Modern Families initiative, and indeed our entire approach to diversity and inclusion, genuinely fosters a positive and supportive environment across the entire firm.

A great deal of research and consideration has gone into what our workforce needs, why and how this shapes the future of the firm and the careers of those that make the business tick.”
