Time to change the way you or your business views work?



Dear Members and Friends

Last year, you told us that you wanted a profession where work/life balance can be achieved. The Women Lawyers Association of NSW has kicked of the year with a number of new events and initiatives aimed at reigniting the issue of flexibility in and promoting greater agility in the legal profession.

On 1 April 2014, Women on Boards is hosting The Agile Future Series, exploring new leadership styles, innovative models of working and case studies from Australian and European companies that have changed the way they work.

I will personally be attending this event to look at ways the insights can be translated to solutions to the challenges in the legal profession and would encourage HR managers, legal leaders and firm influencers to also consider attending. There is an impressive line-up of speakers who have personally guided the transformation of their companies for better business and gender outcomes. More information about the event is noted below and for those who are unable to attend, we will share key insights in the Women Lawyers Network Blog following the event. You can follow our blog at this link: http://womenlawyersnetwork.wordpress.com


Kind regards, 

Natasha Walls
