THE LEGAL 500 > EVENTS > GC DIVERSITY WORKSHOP

In association with:

Diversity workshop


LONDON: 22 FEBRUARY 2017


On Wednesday 22nd February, GC Magazine, The Legal 500 and Baker McKenzie brought together a leading group of General Counsel from a range of organisations to participate in a workshop run by Fearless Futures.

Fearless Futures is an organisation that helps people to understand and challenge the root causes of inequalities and to create powerful new leadership for transformative change.

Their workshop approach is participatory and interactive. On this occasion the workshop had two parts. The first phase took participants through an exploration of privilege and how inequalities across race, gender, class, sexuality, faith and ability underpin our different experiences of the world and relations with one another. The second phase moved into developing participants’ skill at engaging in 'courageous conversations' about the often uncomfortable identity and inequality issues that emerge daily but are often silent or ignored.
