Nov. 3 Webinar: Advancing Equality for Women at the Bar
The Thomson Reuters Transforming Women’s Leadership in the Law (TWLL) program will host the fifth webinar in its series focused on the evolving circumstances due to COVID-19 on Nov. 3. The series began in May to explore the practical methods for advancing gender equality and to help organizations support necessary cultural change. The series also examines the future of the legal industry and the impact on the buy side/sell side.
The Nov. 3 webinar, presented jointly by TWLL and Twenty Essex, will focus on advancing equality for women at the bar and explore recruitment, progression and retention. Panelists will examine how the courts, firms and clients can better collaborate to address the multiple underlying issues.
Panelists will share their leadership perspectives from the bar and law firms to explore solutions and best practices for fostering a fair and equal approach to recruitment, career progression and recognition within the profession. Panelists include:
- Virginia Clegg, senior partner, DAC Beachcroft LLP
- Annabel Thomas, partner, Mishcon de Reya LLP
- Sara Masters, Queen’s Counsel (QC), Twenty Essex
- Patrizia Masselli, director of Litigation, Investigations & Enforcement EME, Barclays Legal
Jemma Tagg, CEO of Twenty Essex, will moderate the discussion.
