LegalDiversity & Inclusivity (Chapter 1: Gender Equality)

The meteoric rise of #metoo and the increasing discussion on “women in law” has put gender equality at the forefront of the legal industry. What are in-house counsel and law firms doing to bridge this gender divide and foster an inclusive culture?

This ground-breaking conference day will provoke, question and provide answers to:

  • How General Counsel use their buying power to ensure real progress?
  • How law firms can create more inclusive, diverse teams by breaking away from the traditional firm culture, including the billable hour?
  • How gender neutral parental leave can potentially solve gender inequality in law, including the impact of technology
  • Do men get an unfair time in 2018?

Who should attend?
In order to incite change within the legal industry on issues of gender equality, Legal Week have found that both men and women need to be in the room. The agenda was formulated by our passionate Advisory Board, which is made up of influential General Counsel seeking to use their buying power to bring about change.
