When it comes to transgender employees in the workplace, should we rely on policies to dictate a firm’s culture or vice versa? We sat down with Clare Fielding, a trans-person and partner at Town Legal LLP in the UK, to discuss best practices when it comes to trans-people in the legal profession.
In part 1, we spoke with Gowling WLG lawyer Jane Clark about her return to work process post-concussion. In part 2, host Roberto Aburto sits down with his wife Carrie-Anne Bourassa, a civil litigation lawyer who previously suffered a concussion and has since returned to work full time. Listen as she delves deeper into the employee-employer dynamic when it comes to dealing with concussions.
Sometimes the worst part about sustaining an injury is the recovery process that follows. When an employee becomes concussed, the road to return to work can be incredibly trying and strenuous. Our special guest Jane Clark, a partner at Gowling WLG, knows this all too well. Join us as she shares her journey and learn what employers should do and expect when an employee suffers concussion.
The glass ceiling is real and many women are finding it hard to fight against the perception that there simply aren’t enough qualified women to fill senior positions and sit on boards. We caught up with Gowling WLG partner Lorraine Mastersmith, who gave us a few great tips on how women can use their connections and champions to break into the boardroom.
There exists a direct correlation between accessibility and social inequality that often goes unaddressed. In today’s episode, special guest Barry Matthews, Director of Legal Affairs at ITV in the UK, joins us to share how he uses social mobility partnerships to help disadvantaged students gain work experience and access to the legal profession.
We are very excited about the season ahead — so much so that we couldn't wait to showcase some of the awesome things diversity champions around the world are doing. From corporate social responsibility to concussions, tune in as our hosts Roberto Aburto and Sarah Willis give you an overview of the guests and topics in store for season 2 of Diversonomics.
