This year’s IWD theme is Choose to Challenge, which aligns with our culture at Baker McKenzie – we are proud to say that at Baker McKenzie, We Are Not Neutral.
Given that this year the UN’s IWD focus is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”, we were keen to profile some of the incredible women leaders in law around the world. These role models are leading their organisations at an immensely challenging time – both professionally and personally. In our report, this group of inspiring lawyers share what they love about working in their chosen industry and the key legal and regulatory challenges they are facing.
They also share their perspectives on the challenges facing women in 2021 and what “Choose to Challenge” means to them. We loved hearing their perspectives and are delighted to share them with you.
