Overview (Program Summary)

With the easing of restrictions in NSW, and before we lose the evening warmth and light, we wanted bring our members together at our first in-person social event (in quite some time!).

The opportunity to come together and network in a physical environment has been a rarity in recent years and has equally brought challenges for many looking to progress their own career pathways through the ability to extend their network. 

Join us for an evening of networking with your peers and an exclusive keynote “Building a working life you don’t need to escape from” delivered by journalist, editor, author, MC, facilitator and prominent advocate for women’s empowerment, gender equality and mental health, Georgie Dent

The ACC NSW would like to thank our new Corporate Alliance Partner, Peerpoint by Allen & Overy, for their sponsorship for our first event in 2022 and future education events we will be bringing to our members in collaboration with Peerpoint by Allen & Overy.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to Minds Count, which help to decrease work-related psychological ill-health in the legal community and to promote workplace psychological health and safety.

Please RSVP by Monday 21 March, sharing any specific dietary requirements with your registration.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Georgie Dent, Keynote - Building a working life you don’t need to escape from
 

As professionals we’ve all seen the pressure cooker turned up high (and even beyond!) as the global pandemic forced us all into new working rhythms alongside professional and personal demands we’d not previously seen or experienced simultaneously.  Amidst the disruption, it also brought the opportunity to reflect on and reset the norms we have previously accepted as we navigate our professional lives.

Research conducted by the International Bar Association suggests that half of young lawyers are somewhat likely, or highly likely, to move to a new but comparable workplace, a third to a new legal profession and a fifth to leave the legal profession in the next five years. This is quite simply a level of structural disruption never before seen in many of our professional careers. Why are lawyers feeling this way and how can we design careers that we don’t want to escape from?
