Women in law: always the bridesmaid, rarely the Supreme Court Justice

Thursday 2 November 2023

This session will provide a perspective from each of the legal sectors considered in the groundbreaking IBA 50:50 by 2030 project. Featuring public, private, in-house and judicial perspectives, the discussion will raise key issues such as why women thrive in some workplaces but not others, why does it matter to have a more balanced workplace, what initiatives appear to work, why the diversity undertakings given are not playing out consistently over time, and how to challenge the status quo.
