We have published our May newsletter - happy reading!
The Women Lawyers Association of the ACT is pleased to present our third Chief Counsel Q&A at Clayton Utz’s offices on Thursday 6 June 2019.
The Chief Counsel Q&A provides an opportunity for attendees to hear from, and ask questions of, Chief Counsel about their experiences in the legal profession, career choices, and path to leadership. Settle down amongst your colleagues, enjoy a glass of wine and some canapés as you listen to the journey that brought our panelists to where they are today.
We are privileged to announce the Chief Counsel joining us for this year’s panel are:
Brigadier Bronwyn Worswick – General Counsel, Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
Janean Richards – Chief Operating Officer, Corporate Division, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.
Kristen Porter – General Counsel, Dexar Group (Independent Property Group, Peter Blackshaw Real Estate, Purdon Planning).
This event sold out quickly last year and we don’t think this year will be any different.
Please note that all of WLA ACT's events are child friendly.
We also note that photos will be taken at the event for our social media and website. If you do not want your photo taken please just let the photographer know.
Our Chief Counsel Q&A is proudly sponsored by Clayton Utz.
