A few years ago I went to a summit called Leadership 2020. At the time it felt like a dream destination that one might never reach, but now it is really here.
At this summit, there were a number of speakers and activities over a couple of days. We took notes, learnt about ways to achieve our goals and looking back now and the work that it took to get here today, it’s really heart settling. I knew at the time that I needed a community, a space in the legal industry but I didn’t know it would come from me.
Even though SHE Legal Co wasn’t a clear thought at the time, and now looking back at how it’s grown to be my very own dream digital Centre for women like myself and you it really goes to show that maybe these summits do come in handy at times. I was skeptical going in, but I knew I needed some form of motivation and structure to help me figure out how I’ll go about finding or creating this space that my heart yearned for so much and for so long. After that whole experience, I tucked away my notes and activities, as one does.
But overtime, I kept all that I learnt in the back of my mind, and it has undeniably influenced a lot of what I do everyday. So, here is 2020 available for us all to take a chance at achieving our dreams and goals.
I’d like to welcome you all to the aftermath of that summit, and this year my hope for myself, for you and for the SHE Legal Co community is that we lead with intention this year. I look forward to all the projects we have lined up this year but above that I look forward to continuously work on growing this community to be an integral part of your career.
Happy New Year, and thank you all very much for your support over the last two years. Cheers to number 3.
