It’s time to address the gender imbalance, lawyer says

An Aberdeen lawyer says there has never been a better time to address a gender imbalance in the UK oil and gas industry. Offshore employment expert Kate Williams, an Aberdeen-based partner in legal firm Pinsent Masons, wants to see a greater effort to recruit more women, and insists the law can be used to boost their numbers. The proportion of women in the industry is reported to be 23%, compared to a 47% national average. The imbalance worsens when narrowed to offshore workers, with just 3.6% of them women.
