The Law Society in association with Bristol Law Society & Bristol Women Lawyers Division will be celebrating International Women’s Day 2023 on 16 March; 11.45am-2.00pm with a webinar Embracing Equity: Collective Action Towards Change

The Law Society Women Solicitors Network (WSN) Committee invite you and your colleagues to our panel event to celebrate International Women’s Day 2023. The event will be run as a hybrid event, with us live streaming the London event to a Bristol audience. The in-person Bristol event will be kindly hosted by Simmons & Simmons, Aurora, Finzels Reach, Counterslip, Bristol, BS1 6BX and will run from 11.45am until 2.00pm with refreshments.

Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have. But what is equity and what does it mean for women in the legal profession?

Join our panellists for International Women’s Day 2023 as we explore what it means for women solicitors, what barriers are blocking true equity in the profession, and what we can collectively do to create lasting change and a workplace where everyone feels valued, respected, and safe.
