Speaker: Katherine Maver, Past President of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association and Senior Managing Consultant at IBM.
Katherine Maver is a champion of diversity both in her workplace at IBM, and in the broader community. She was the first openly trans woman to be appointed on the board of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association (SGLBA). She will be joining us to speak about her experiences as a trans woman in a professional environment. She will also address the lack of mental health services available to the LGBTQIA+ community during the global pandemic.
The Australian National University and University of Sydney are conducting a study to identify key labour market and workplace transformations in the law and understand how these changes might affect women and men differently within the profession. The Women Lawyers’ Association of NSW is pleased to collaborate on this research, along with the Law Society of NSW, as we seek to determine what can be done now to identify and address gendered inequalities in the future of work within the law.
We invite members and colleagues to participate in this research via The Future of Work in the Legal Profession survey. Your participation is highly valued and will help us understand what may contribute to a rewarding and sustainable profession and assist policymakers and professional leaders build a more equitable future. Responses will remain confidential and anonymous. You can read more about the research here.
The survey closes at 5pm on Tuesday 28 September 2021. Please click here to access the Survey.
