  • 31/08/2022

We are delighted to present our first podcast from the Manchester Law Society Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee: Views on gender equality in the legal profession – how can we do better?


This series aims to shine a spotlight on the various strands of diversity in the legal profession, engaging with panelists with lived experience who can talk about those experiences, providing advice and presenting a realistic picture of where we are and where we would like to be.


In this episode we hear from Melanie McGuirk, Partner at Pannone Corporate LLP, Emma Lewis, Managing Director at EL Law and Naana Kufuor, Solicitor at JMW Solicitors LLP.


Melanie, Emma, and Naana discuss their experiences as women working in the law, people who have inspired and supported them, challenges they have faced, and things they would like to see improved.
