Jane will share with us her reflections on importance of resilience as a leader, in the context of her experience in leadership roles, and particularly in the context of championing diversity at the NSW Bar.

As President of the NSW Bar Association, she has been committed to goals of diversity, gender equity and recognition of flexible practice within the profession and at the Bar, and has been proud to be part of the Bar’s programs such as the guarantee of CBD childcare spaces, Best Practice Guidelines, and work on equitable briefing.
