Her story

Kate is the Legal Director at Clark & Associates Mediation Services.

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

I bring people in conflict together to have respectful, structured and restorative dialogue about disputes and the impacts / harms / needs that relate to them.

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

Heard, voices, views.

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

A shift in culture. Intentional inclusion. Some people stepping back and giving others a turn.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

I have never been capable of being a bystander. If something is happening and I hold a concern that it is not right I will be that annoying person who stands up and causes a fuss. Becoming a lawyer allowed me to do that for a profession.
