Panel discussion

Issues for consideration

 

1. Leadership. What distinguishes a leader in the legal profession? (regardless of sex)

2. Is there a difference between female leader and a male leader? How often do you meet women who are true leaders? How do you articulate the tasks that are facing you today?

3. Public stereotypes, "glass ceiling" and other gender-oriented challenges in the profession: have you faced them? What solutions have found for yourself?

4. Does equality of opportunity in the legal profession exist in Ukraine (including the level of wages)? What can we do to create / guarantee it?

 

Motivation

 

1. Personal experience: inspiring cases. Share the most significant case from your own professional practice.

2. Which advice would you give yourself - being a novice specialist or a younger colleague?

3. Role models: name three women leaders (not necessarily from the legal sphere), who inspire you and explain why.
