London (02 October, 2017) – Reed Smith is pleased to announce that Alicia Millar, the firm’s senior learning and development manager for EMEA, is featured in Brummell magazine’s Inspirational Women list for 2017. 

The list, published this morning, shines a spotlight on 30 women in the City who are influential industry change-makers. Alicia is featured for her role at the forefront of Reed Smith’s organisational development strategy as well as diversity initiatives both at the firm and more broadly.  

At Reed Smith, Alicia leads on designing award-winning organisational development programmes, partnering with sector and industry group leaders to deliver bespoke development initiatives for their teams across the EMEA region. She sits on the Diversity Committee and the Responsible Business Committee, and works closely with the leadership team of WINRS – the firm’s global women’s initiative network. She has created opportunities to bring all the employee affinity networks together to learn and share best practice and become allies for each other.

Alicia is an inspirational role-model to others in championing and supporting LGBT individuals. She serves as a NED of MyGWork, the only LGBT-dedicated professional networking and recruitment platform. Alicia also co-chairs the LGBT chapter of The Network of Networks and has a pro bono coaching practice. She stepped down earlier this year as the co-chair of PRISM, Reed Smith’s European LGBT Network, having successfully achieved Stonewall Workplace Equality Index top 100 employer status.
