Happy International Women’s Day!

This morning the women of our firm, along with a group of impressive women that we often work with joined a whole ballroom full of women (and a few gents) at the Women of Influence’s International Women’s Day Breakfast where we heard from a very inspiring and interesting speaker, Megan Norris.

Megan shared her story, along with the stories of many other women who have overcome adversity and challenges (in many cases, against all odds) to get to where they are today.

The message for International Women’s Day this year is “Embrace Equity” which is about recognising why equal opportunities aren’t enough.

We have collectively come so far in so many ways and yet still not far enough or at all in many others and meaningful, results-driven equitable action is required to keep us moving in the right direction.

In 2016, the legal profession hit gender parity for the first time and since then, women solicitors comprise 53% of the legal profession, yet the gender pay gap persists – equity is not just about ensuring women can go to law school and get jobs in the industry, it’s also about introducing more child-care and maternity leave options and ensuring those women who enter the workforce are meaningfully supported throughout their careers to level that gap.

Thank you to Women of Influence, Megan Norris, and all of our wonderful guests this morning for a perfect start to IWD 🙌🏻
