On 6 May 2017 members attended a voice coach workshop with Lucy Cornell at the ACT Supreme Court. Lucy has over 10 years of working in court rooms, as well as in the boardrooms she visits, and her Lucy’s experience is that women are still battling to have their voice heard. Male modes of communication still dominate and male voices are still favoured.
Lucy worked with participants to help them understand what compromises impact in court or in meetings, helped participants with specific techniques to address these issues, and attuned them to the ways that spoken advocacy depends on more than the words alone.
We would like to thank Chief Justice Murrell for introducing the event.
