Reinvent, Rebuild, Renew Series

We are hosting a weekly interview series featuring women and men who we find inspiration and who we think have interesting stories to tell.

Our inaugural interview was with Husnara Begum.  Husnara is a lawyer turned journalist turned recruiter turned entrepreneur and a leading campaigner on disability rights.  She spoke to us about her advice for those approaching the recruitment market in turbulent times and her experience of pivoting her career.

You can watch an excerpt of her interview here.

Our next interview is with Anne Todd, a commercial solicitor who has worked in private practice, in-house and taken on freelance roles.  She has a number of first, including being one of the first candidates to complete the Reignite Academy programme.  She is now a senior solicitor at Macfarlanes and joins us next Tuesday, 16th June to share insights and lessons learned from a varied career.

Events & Annual Conference

We are changing the conversations about women in the workplace and in doing so we aim to shift long held attitudes and beliefs so that more women are able to progress through the profession.

We run a weekly series of interviews with people who we find inspiring and who have interesting stories to tell.   The series is called Reinvent, Rebuild Restart:  Vital Skills for a Successful Career and is designed to provide practical insights as well as motivation and inspiration.

Sally Boyle, Head of Human Capital at Goldman Sachs was our guest speaker at our inaugural Reignite Academy/XX Advantage event: “How to Navigate a Non-Linear Career: An Employment Lawyer’s Perspective”, hosted by Simmons & Simmons.

“How to Build the Next Generation of Female Rainmakers” saw Kathleen Russ, Travers Smith Managing Partner, talk to a diverse panel of law firm partners and GCs about what is clearly a hot topic – the event sold out in 24 hours.

Our annual conference will launch in November 2020.
