Heaps if you are one of the #winning #women doing the #juggle as they deliver excellence in Australian legal services!
Celebrating and recognising excellence and achievement from women in any industry is a powerful driver towards gender equity.
Absolutely chuffed to support @Gabrielle Guthrie as she was named #Finalist in the Sole Practitioner Category at the Women In Law Awards hosted by Lawyers Weekly at the Sofitel last night. So proud of her results and achievements in just two years of establishing her own practice providing accessible, specialist environment and planning law advice. Phenomenal woman. Phenomenal lawyer. Phenomenal result
The 21 acceptance speeches represented all the richness, value and #diversity that working women provide to society with many reflecting that despite the juggle they were still able to deliver substantive change or results for clients.
One of the winners shared a vulnerable moment that her Award nomination video accidentally included the Peppa the Pig soundtrack as she juggled childcare duties, work responsibilities and a looming Award nomination deadline. Despite this (or maybe because of this!!!), she won her category (you can’t keep amazing talent down) but it was a great story that highlights the juggle that many women deal with to stay ahead of the curve. The audience loved it.
Kudos to all the 180 finalists in the room and to the 20 women who were named as #winners.
Keep inspiring others.
Special shout out to the other finalists at my table including Lesley Symons and Harmers Workplace Lawyers
