The pair reflect on the evolution of conversations about Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) over the years, the state of affairs for the advancement of D&I in Australia’s legal profession, how well or otherwise the profession is doing in promoting equality for women coming through the ranks, the fiscal imperative in doing so, and the prevalence of self-stigma in having such conversations.

Ms Lancashire also details how best existing leaders can support emerging leaders in their growth and development, the need to find new and creative ways to support the next generation, the Artesian Female Leaders Venture Capital Fund and its work to support women lawyers, overcoming change fatigue in the workplace, and how best men can meaningfully be part of such conversations.
