Her story

Belinda is a Partner at Cooper Grace Ward.

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

I help employers navigate the complexities of running a business. I help junior practitioners to become great lawyers. I help the legal industry understand the importance of mental health and how we can protect it.

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

Substance not token.

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

The younger generation demanding change and having the ability to influence change (usually by way of seniority).

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

As a small business owner myself back then (bakery) to help employers understand the rules of business. Also, to earn enough money to support my child as a single parent.
