The Next 100 Years movement is celebrating International Women's Day with a special online event honouring the lives of pioneering women in the legal profession.
Reflecting on the legacies they want to create for future generations of women lawyers, the event will explore why it is important for women to share their personal experiences and record their testimonies for posterity.
Panelists and audience will be asked to consider the role and value of women's groups and networks in fostering women's empowerment and professional advancement.
The speakers are all women who are actively supporting and promoting women lawyers in their careers. They are: Her Honour Judge Khatun Sapnara, Deputy High Court Judge and co-chair of the Temple Women’s Forum; Dana Denis-Smith, Founder of Obelisk Support and the First 100 Hundred Years/Next 100 Years campaign; and Laurie-Anne Power, barrister at Bedford Row Chambers and chair of the Women in Criminal Law’s Racial Equality Committee. They will be interviewed by Dr Dvora Liberman, researcher and interviewer for the Inspiring Women Lawyers Project; and the event will be chaired by Professor Linda Mulcahy, director of the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford.
The event takes place on Thursday 11 March from 6.30-7.45pm. Click here to sign up.
