Conversations on Progression

Date: 29th March 2022

Time: 13:00 - 14:00

Location:
Zoom

Role models, sharing knowledge and support are three of the most important elements in the campaign for gender equality in the legal profession. As part of our gender quality action plan, this year we’re hosting a series of events that combine these elements to help further the cause of gender equality. These events will give women planning the next steps in their careers the opportunity to hear from, speak to and learn from amazing women who have already taken those steps. Fittingly, the first of these events is being held just a few weeks after International Women’s Day as we work to #BreakTheBias. This informative session will focus on the steps required to become a partner/principal in private practice, as well as the challenges and benefits that come with such senior roles. We are grateful to our four confirmed speakers who are ideally placed to offer their wisdom, inspiration and support: Jenny Dickson (Chair, Morton Fraser) Anne Macdonald (Partner, Harper Macleod) Frances Ross (Partner, Clyde & Co) Khalda Wali (Principal, LKW Solicitors) Please join us in the first of this series.
