Our first blog - An Introduction
Thank you for visiting our blog. If you have made it this far, we hope you know all about Women in Law Kent, but just in case you do not, here is a little about us.
Our main aim is to empower, support and connect women in law, and those who aspire to work in the legal industry, through training courses, social events, networking and panel discussion.
We have lots of long-term plans which we will reveal later, but we are very excited about what the future has in store for legal women in Kent. We will be announcing our 2022 events in the New Year, so watch this space!
We launched WILK in 2020, just before the country's first lockdown in March. We saw a gap in support for women, particularly in Kent, and so WILK was born. Our founding members are Jessica Ward, a Criminal Barrister, Megan Ryan, a Family Law Trainee and Gemma Adams, a Criminal Paralegal.
During 2020, we moved all of our events online and were able to reach a wider audience. We held regular virtual coffee mornings, an Women in Law panel discussion with some very inspirational speakers, and a Confidence Workshop. We have plans to hold virtual and face to face events in the future, so we can inspire and empower as many people as possible.
Although we are a group focussed on women in Kent, our events are open to everyone. We are particularly keen to have some male champions on board too! Everyone is welcome to join us and get involved!
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our email address email@example.com or find us on socials 'Women in Law Kent'.
We hope to see you soon!
