Day 1: Diversity in the Australian Legal Profession

Strong, courageous and authentic leadership is extremely important for addressing issues relevant to the advancement of women and diversity in the workplace. Such leadership is key to attracting and retaining talent in legal workplaces, as well as channelling the business benefits that research shows can only be generated by diverse legal teams.

This business roundtable is for those who work with leaders in the legal profession, potential and future leaders in the legal profession, and current leaders as well.

Day 2: Leadership in the Australian Legal Profession

The second day will take you through workable examples for networking, leadership, innovation, technology, entrepreneurship, pay negotiation, client-facing skills, marketing, social media engagement, public speaking, and business development. Attend Day 1’s sessions on diversity, and get ready for a practically-focused event – a “women lawyers toolkit”!
