Going beyond the accepted merits of diversity and challenging the status quo by shifting personal mental paradigms and bringing more inclusive cultural practices to the legal profession was a key message of the ‘Beyond Diversity – the Next Step’ event hosted by Muslim Legal Network (MLN) and the Asian Australian Lawyers Association (AALA) on Tuesday, 8th October 2019.
Together with Jane Lee from the ABC, the distinguished panel consisting of Special Counsel Cynthia Anandajayasekeram from Ashurst, Fatmir Badali of Counsel from Victorian Bar and Judicial Registrar Tuan Van Le from the Federal Court of Australia, shared their intimate and personal experiences and perspectives on how our own mentality can drive us forward in the face of perceived or actual bias and standards. If you missed the live event, you can tune in to the upcoming broadcast of Radio National’s – the Law Report. Stay connected with us to find out more soon!
Our special thanks go to Ashurst, Melbourne Lawyers & Medications, Australian multicultural foundation, Russell Kennedy Lawyers and the ABC for their support of the event.
