In October 2018, Danielle was selected to the Women Lawyers Division at the Law Society as a committee member.
Danielle feels that she is well placed to contribute to the gender equality campaign. As Hilary Rodham Clinton said, ‘Time alone is unlikely to alter significantly the under representation of women in law firm partnerships, judicial appointments…’ She shares that belief and regret that the equality agenda remains unfinished.
The Women Lawyers Division supports and advises all women solicitors and aspiring women solicitors, from trainees to retirees.
