Her story

Renee is a Director at Kare Lawyers.

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

Providing expertise and compassion to my clients when they are often at their most vulnerable and assisting them to achieve a positive outcome and fresh start.

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

Perspective, respect, education.

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

A commitment to educating lawyers to truly appreciate and respect others peoples’ differences and opinions. I strongly believe the younger generation of lawyers will be game changers when it comes to diversity within the profession.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

My Year 11 English teacher suggested I look at law as a profession. I think I make a better lawyer than I would have dentist, which was another career choice I considered.
