Innovation, the sort that transforms and not just tinkers at the edges, is as unlikely to happen in the legal industry, as any other, without diversity and inclusion. Different perspectives and ideas, shaped from different experiences, will create that sort of change and lead the legal industry into its next iteration.
With that in mind, Christie Guimond, Priya Lele and Nicky Leijtens formed She Breaks the Law (SBTL), an amazing “global network of women leaders who are breaking the mould and challenging the norm in the world of law.”
We spoke with Christie, who is also a Senior Manager in Legal Project Management at White & Case LLP in London, to learn a little more about SBTL: how and why it formed, its unique value proposition, the importance of diversity and inclusion and what SBTL will focus on in the coming year.
Thanks so much, Christie – SBTL is an amazing initiative and we can’t wait to see and support what you, Priya and Nicky will do next!
