Mishcon de Reya hosts their annual Women's Forum with Yvette Cooper

On 21 October, Yvette Cooper, the Shadow Home Secretary for the Labour Party, came to Mishcon's offices for their annual Women's Forum, hosted by Rowena Herdman-Smith, a Partner in Mishcon's Corporate Department.

The Women's Forum, founded in 2005, provides senior businesswomen with the ability to network with likeminded peers. The events promote learning in a general business context, as well as the opportunity to discuss issues from a gender related perspective.

Yvette discussed how gender equality issues translate in Parliament and how all women shortlists can play a crucial role in shaking up the system.
