To celebrate Women’s History Month, reporter Charlotte Kilpatrick invited three UK-based in-house counsel to share their experiences of how COVID-19 has affected their careers.

Anita Shaw, patent attorney at IBM; Amira Mukhtar, counsel at Mars; and Kelly Jean Williams, head of legal affairs at animation company Passion Pictures, discussed topics such as how employers can support women who are juggling a full-time job as well as home schooling and other care-giving roles.

The podcast also touched on how best to encourage young women to study STEM subjects, as well as why diversity and inclusion is important in the legal profession.
