By Sophie Vanhegan - 30 April 2019
On 5 April 2019, Sophie Vanhegan and Hannah Mahon in our team launched the Littler Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) in Europe in Paris, at the offices of fellow Littler Global firm Fromont Briens. The event saw senior female lawyers from across the Littler Global European network come together to discuss how we can promote gender diversity across our teams and we were lucky enough to have Selvamalar Alagaratnam, Partner at Malaysian firm Skrine, deliver a keynote speech on her career journey as a female leader in law.
The Littler WLI has been a huge success in the US, winning multiple awards and recognition for its efforts on gender diversity. In line with that, the WLI Europe will focus on developing and retaining women leaders across the Littler Global European network by facilitating discussions to enable women to learn how to promote their successes and identify what skills are needed to advance. It will also promote diversity themed training and events for our clients, as companies in multiple industries look at ways of improving their diversity at more senior levels.
Watch this space for diversity themed talks and events which WLI Europe will be sponsoring!
