WLANSW is pleased to announce its first jointly hosted event with the Asian Australian Lawyers Association (AALA). This event will be the second event hosted by Bartier Perry with guest speaker and expert on unconscious bias, Heather Price (pictured) of Symmetra following the success of our event in October 2015 on the topic of “Adopting a More Conscious Approach to Better Decision Making: Counteracting Unconscious Bias in the Legal Profession”.
In this session on “Where the Glass and Bamboo Ceilings Meet in the Australian Legal Profession”, Heather will address the concept of intersectional diversity and will outline ways in which both individuals and management within the legal profession can tackle unconscious bias in relation to both gender and race.
Please note that due to the limited allocation of tickets, this event will be by invitation only to WLANSW Members. AALA Members, please contact AALA direct in regard to your ticket allocation.
Please join us for some nibbles and drinks at PEWA and the WLANSW’s first joint networking event!
We have a very special guest speaker, Ms Chloe Munroe, Chair and CEO of the Clean Energy Regulator, who will be sharing her insights into the resilience involved in being a professional woman leader in environmental protection.
Chloe has had a distinguished career in both public and private sectors, with particular experience in infrastructure and resources. Prior to her appointment of Chair and CEO of the Clean Energy Regulator, Chloe was the Chair of the National Water Commission, the independent non-executive Chairman of AquaSure, the consortium building Victoria’s desalination plant, and a non-executive director of Hydro Tasmania.
FREE Event. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by Friday 22 July 2016. Please click here to register.
The aim of The Professional Environmental Women’s Association (PEWA NSW) is to bring together women who work in a broad range of sectors within the New South Wales environment and sustainability industry.
