This panel aims to frame the day and introduce the key themes that we will discuss throughout the day

 #HeForShe Keynote Speech – Lord Neuberger discusses women in law, leadership, and making change through embracing diversity, followed by a Q&A

 #HeForShe panel – How men have helped, and can continue to help, women in the profession. We hope to pose the question, “what can men do?” to help women reach the higher echelons of the legal industry.

 #SheForShe Women Leaders in Law panel – We explore the stories of women who have reached the top of the profession. This panel will look at the breadth of the legal sphere and celebrate the stories of women from across the profession, from the women themselves.

 #SheForShe Leadership – Women entering the public sphere panel: An assessment of how to create positive change for women leaders in law: an insight from other sectors outside the law. How can we get more women to reach the top: a non-law perspective?
