To crack the code to gender equality, we need to leverage technologies and embrace disruptive innovation within the legal profession. Innovation is a key driver of disruption and change and is critical to achieving a gender equal future. Equality will only be achieved with bold transformative ideas, inclusive innovation and lasting solutions.
Hear from incredible women in the legal industry - innovators, entrepreneurs, and gender equality champions who are inspired to make a difference every day.
“Our gender equal future is only possible with more women in leadership, financially empowered and able to fully participate - a future where all women are safe and free from violence, at the heart of decisionmaking for inclusive, educated and innovative communities.” Simone Clarke, CEO UN Women Australia
