In this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by the past president and former non-executive director of the Governance Institute of Australia, Trisha Mok, to discuss the practical ways that corporate entities can improve diversity across the in-house sector.
Trisha discusses the networking organisation Women on Boards, how a shift to a more female inclusive environment is beneficial in more ways than just “ticking a box”, and explores the inclusiveness of other arms of diversity such as race, sexuality and disability.
The pair also discuss the future changes likely to impact the industry, whether diversity inclusiveness is headed in the right direction, and why in-house counsel is an attractive area for a wide range of new legal professionals.
