Why First 100 Years is important
Role models are important to our sense of self. They show that difference is valued and that anything can be achieved if you put your mind to it. The First 100 Years project is a fantastic vehicle for sharing the stories of female role models who have contributed so much to the legal sector. For me, one of the reasons why this project is so important is that has the potential to inspire a young people who aspire to start a career in law and empower women already working in the sector to reach their full potential.
