Monday 27 May 2024, 10.00am – 11.00am
Where: Bld 028, Room 003, JCU Townsville, Bebegu Yumba Campus, Douglas

What does diversity in law look like to you? In Season 1 of the 'Tilé and Olly Meets' podcast, the theme was 'Lens on Diversity'. Join us as these podcast co-hosts, lawyers, and JCU alums, Tilé and Olly, take you through some of the key lessons they have learned from their podcast. During their first season they met with lawyers, barristers, judges, and justice advocates of diverse backgrounds. Their 23 podcast guests varied in age, gender, sexuality, race, faith and disability to name a few. What were their thoughts on diversity? How were they applying their lived experiences to their legal practice? What resources or frameworks have helped them to navigate diversity? This presentation will explore some of these answers, as well as tap into Tilé and Olly’s own lived and practice experiences in law. You will not want to miss this opportunity to have a fresh new lens on diversity in the legal profession.
