From Aspirations to Action: Pathways to Achieving a Diverse and Inclusive Legal Profession  

Leading members of the legal profession providing guidance on the New Zealand Change Makers gender diversity programme

About Our Event

The ideal environment for legal professionals is one that provides all participants with equal pathways to success, regardless of their gender, family status, ethnicity or sexuality.

Achieving genuine diversity and inclusion (D&I) outcomes requires buy-in from all members of the legal profession, including clients. Ongoing dialogue and debate is needed to shape a more inclusive future for all New Zealand lawyers.

    But beyond words and aspirations, the onus is on legal leaders to drive positive outcomes. Thomson Reuters, in collaboration with the Change Makers New Zealand Advisory Board, is hosting a launch event to explore the role of legal leaders as D&I change agents.

    Key topics to be explored include:

  • Links between wellbeing, gender equality and commercial success
  • Managing client and staff expectations: what can we do better?
  • The New Zealand legal profession in an ongoing COVID-19 environment


Keynote speakers and discussion panel members to be announced shortly.
