International Women’s Day virtual event on Monday 8th March.
The event will be held in the evening of March 8th on Zoom, titled Women Who Challenge: The Legal Sector. This is to compliment the theme of International Women’s Day which is #ChooseToChallenge, where we will showcase some fantastic women in the legal sector who are breaking barriers and advocating for women. The event will be a panel discussion with speakers sharing their experiences within the sector and what challenges they have had to overcome.
Hosted by Kay Burley, Sky News presenter and broadcaster, our speakers include Christina Blacklaws, former President of the Law Society, Dame Bobbie Cheema-Grubb, the first Asian woman to serve as a High Court Judge in the UK and Adeola Fadipe, a Pupil Barrister who founded an organisation to help diverse candidates access the Bar.
