Without mentioning your job title, how would you describe what it is you do now (whether at home, work, in the community, etc.)?

I am seeking to become an emerging female leader in the property industry in Queensland. This feeds into my day job and my work in the community generally.

What are the first three words you think of when you hear the word ‘diversity’?

“Be what you see” (sorry that’s technically 4 words)

What do you think it will take to develop truly diverse thinking within the legal industry?

Time for the people that champion these perspectives to rise to the top of influential positions and organisations.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

To be part of a collegial profession that helps the wider community in some way.
