Addressing ‘Pledge for Parity’, the theme of IWD this year, Bell discussed the broad spectrum of issues facing women today with Mishcon de Reya’s Director of External Affairs, Lisa Tremble.

The event was held in partnership with MicroLoan Foundation – an organisation that helps some of the poorest women in the world by providing small loans and ongoing business training and support, introduced to the firm by Mishcon de Reya Managing Associate, Dina Shiloh, who is a trustee.
