Ep. 35 - Flexible Working and Equality In The World Of Law: with Dana Denis-Smith of Obelisk Support and The First 100 Years Project

More From Law

COVID-19 has created a truly unexpected work-from-home 'experiment' within the legal profession. Almost every lawyer in every jurisdiction is working under their own roof rather than their firm's. But will this flexible approach be here to stay? How might this help promote the notion that lawyers can balance parental, familiail or otherwise social commitments outside of the workplace? To answer that question, I speak to Dana Denis-Smith - CEO and Founder of Obelisk Support, which promotes flexible working within law, as well as the Founder of the First 100 Years Project, which documents and celebrates the journey of women within the world of law.Music provided by Audio Library: Jungle Juice - Wataboi.
