Her story

Rachel is the Asia-Pacific Lead at D2 Legal Technology.

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

I connect people, manage legal risk, promote women in law, and support the arts.

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

Acceptance, humanity, decisions.

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

An ability to see things from others’ points of view, and an innate understanding of the business and societal benefits of having people of different talents, backgrounds and mindsets in an organization.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

I always enjoyed debating at school so thought I might become a barrister, but ended up taking the law firm route upon qualification and have now been in-house for most of my career.
