Incisive Media launches Women in Law Awards

November 28, 2019

Incisive Media is delighted to launch the Women in Law Awards 2020, an exciting new event taking place at the Hilton London Bankside on Tuesday June 2, 2020.

The legal profession can point to some progress towards creating a diverse and inclusive sector, but there is still a long way to go, including the field of gender inequality.

By highlighting excellence and achievement, the awards will provide women throughout the profession with the opportunity to step forward and be recognised.

They also aim to serve as a catalyst to help shape the gender diversity debate, by disseminating best practice and challenging some of the cultural and business norms that continue to hold women back.

Categories include Woman of the Year, Mentor of the Year and Outstanding Returner of the Year, which recognises the challenges associated with returning to work after a long break.

The judging panel includes Evelyn Styles, UK and Ireland general counsel at Hays; Kathleen Russ, senior partner at Travers Smith; Joanna Harris, head of responsible business at Simmons & Simmons; Tuvia Borok, executive director and senior counsel, legal department, Goldman Sachs; and Nicholas Cheffings, chair of PRIME, an alliance of law firms across the UK that is committed to improving access to the legal profession through work experience.

“I am honoured to be on the judging panel for the first Women in Law Awards,” said Harris. “Showcasing the achievements of women across the industry is a great way of celebrating real talent and, importantly, inspires others to make their mark too.”

“I’m delighted that Incisive Media has launched the Women in Law Awards,” said MD of events Simone Broadhurst. “We are passionate about diversity and want to see women’s achievements recognised further in sectors where they are under-represented. We hope these awards will bring about cultural change and tackle the gender imbalance in the legal profession.”

The nomination process for the awards opens on November 28, and the deadline for nominations is January 10.

These awards are the latest in a series of diversity events delivered by Incisive Media, including The Women in Insurance Awards, The Women in Accountancy and Finance Awards and The Women in Investment Awards.
