Her story

Shelley is a Partner at Kingston Reid.

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

I partner with clients to solve their most complex workplace problems.

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

An absolute necessity.

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

Diversity at all levels. Attracting and retaining diverse people naturally leads to diversity in thought. On a positive note, we're seeing more of this in the legal industry.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

I knew that I wanted to be a lawyer. Once I'd set that goal I never looked back. It was also probably all the Ally McBeal that was watched in my household!
