Carrie - 'Hidden In Plain Sight' - Women as natural communicators

Who should attend

Carrie is open to all female in-house lawyers.

Synopsis

Our gender network is named after Carrie Morrison, the first woman to be admitted as a solicitor in December 1922. The aim of Carrie is to bring together in-house lawyers in an interactive, stimulating environment, to provide practical guidance from accomplished speakers and to enable networking and sharing of experiences.

We are delighted to invite you to our next virtual Carrie network event to discuss women as natural communicators. Naomi Sesay will be leading the session on ‘Hidden In Plain Sight’.

This session will focus on:

  • Highlighting why creating a psychology step change is key to dismantling discriminating and bias ideas that plague our world
  • Understanding why the female nuance behind cognitive communication is key to moving our teams and organisations toward new and powerful ways of thinking, living and working

At Eversheds Sutherland, we are committed to building a gender balanced business and living our values to embed an open, professional and inclusive culture. This commitment is at the heart of our strategic focus to develop an environment where colleagues of all genders can develop to their full potential, make fulfilling career choices and where gender or gender identity does not pose a barrier to success.
