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

Opportunity, creativity, joy.

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

Accepting, respecting and collaborating with each other as an interdisciplinary team in an interdisciplinary legal business.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

To help make the law accessible and relatable for my clients.
