Women, Influence & Power in Law

Spanning across two days, Law.com hosted their Women in Power in Law conference virtually, offering opportunities to network with and learn from senior female in-house and private practice lawyers, on the hottest leadership and legal issues.

London Partner, Anna Morfey, moderated an afternoon session on day two: ‘The Career Gap & Maternity Leave: A Powerful Return To The Workforce” – a timely discussion as the number of women returning to work after a career gap, both within the legal profession and across the wider business community, is on the increase.

Having experienced maternity leave and the transition of returning to work herself, Anna had first-hand knowledge to share, together with this panel of established women:

  • Gaby Dosanjh-Pahil – Head of Dispute Resolution and Group Corporate Anti-Financial Crime Officer, SSE plc
  • Barbara Levi – General Counsel, Rio Tinto
  • Vicky Sandry – General Counsel, Sky UK
  • Stephanie Dillon – Co-founder and Director, Reignite Academy
