Ep 6: Lawyer v Diversity

Do we all need to be like Harvey Specter – aggressive, unscrupulous and slick –  to be a gun lawyer?

Nat and Jenn explore stereotypes in the law, and explain how challenging archetypes of lawyers through diversity can enhance wellbeing. Diversity can include traditional attributes like gender, disability, race, sexuality and parental status, but also different personality types, leadership styles and problem-solving approaches.

Nat and Jenn discuss  the many benefits of workplace diversity including improved mental health and happiness, representativeness of the law and legal innovation.

They suggest different ways of supporting diversity, most importantly - be yourself!
