Legal heads offer perspectives on championing change

Achieving any change takes commitment from every leader within the company, not just senior managers.

A panel of heads of legal from some of the largest companies in Australia will share their experience at the upcoming Women in Law Summit.

In this inspiring session, Joanna Brand, Chief Legal Counsel with Jetstar Group, Richard Dammery, Chief Legal Officer & Company Secretary at Woolworths, Betty Ivanoff, Group General Counsel and Company Secretary at Coca Cola Amatil, Kate Jordan, Deputy Chief Executive Partner at Clayton Utz and Vered Keisar, Vice President and General Counsel Asia Pacific, Resmed and Chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the Association of Corporate Counsel will discuss practical strategies for a leadership culture that champions diversity.

Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • What strategies can firms incorporate to actively promote change?
  • Reflecting on your own organisation’s leadership and actively promote the heart of the issue
  • How anyone can be a role model for an inclusive culture
  • What does the future hold for women in law?

Other sessions at the Summit include gender equality, diversity and inclusion, conquering discrimination, incorporating flexibility in the workplace and championing change. Click here to view the full conference schedule.
