Female Partners still a minority, but growing this year in particular. Diverse workforce (ethnicity, background, previous experience)

Hiring and promotion is very inclusive. Parental leave options are also very generous.

Maternity leave - seems quite good. I would estimate 3/4 of the partners in my department are women. There is about a 50/50 mix of males in females in the general staff in the department

BDO endorses all of the above. The firm has an appropriate women to men ratio and employs people of various backgrounds. Also, my team actually had four women who went on maternity leave.
