Lawyers Weekly Podcast Network

Nov 24, 2020

The Partner of the Year Awards 2020 will be hosted as a live broadcast event on Friday 27 November, and as part of this virtual event, Lawyers Weekly is pleased to bring you a series of podcasts showcasing finalists across numerous award categories.

In this episode, Lawyers Weekly deputy editor Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Shirley Southgate, executive director of Leo Cussen Centre for Law, event partner of the Women in Law Awards, and representatives from two finalists in the Diversity Law Firm of the Year category: Zoe Lynam from Proximity and Genevieve Collins from Lander & Rogers.

The quartet discuss what diversity means in the modern legal marketplace, what efforts and initiatives are working and where strategies might need to be re-evaluated, how the age of coronavirus has impacted upon professional and financial investment in advancing diversity and inclusion, and where opportunities might exist for such advancement in a post-pandemic world.

Lawyers Weekly will continue to recognise the achievements of talented female professionals in law in 2020 — despite not being able to host everyone in-person. Registration is free for our live broadcast, which will be held on at 7pm AEST on Thursday 10 December.

Register now to be a part of the Lawyers Weekly Partner of the Year 2020 virtual ballroom.
