Women Who Challenge: The Legal Sector - Monday 8th March, 7.00 - 8.30pm


Join us for exclusive online evening for International Women’s Day, where we will be showcasing the leading women in the sector who are breaking barriers and advocating for women’s place within it, challenging the gender norms and stereotypes they have encountered.

The event will be an evening panel discussion on Zoom, with speakers sharing their experiences within the sector and what challenges they have had to overcome. There will also be an audience Q+A portion at the end of the event where attendees can send in their questions.

Hosted by Kay Burley, Sky News presenter and broadcaster, our speakers include Christina Blacklaws, former President of the Law Society, Dame Bobbie Cheema-Grubb, the first Asian woman to serve as a High Court Judge in the UK and Adeola Fadipe, a Pupil Barrister who founded an organisation to help diverse candidates access the Bar.
