When looking back at 2020, we can conclude it was a turbulent year, in which we’ve all had to adjust our day-to-day lives considerably. We’ve adjusted to new ways of working; a new integration of work and our personal life; new rules governing how we spend our free time, in whose company and where; and new ways of celebrating our customs and landmark events, such as birthdays, weddings, and festive holidays. The ‘new normal’.
Amid all the disruption, we were comforted to see that some things don’t fundamentally change. The resilience of our teams; our collective desire to support and stand up for each other; the willingness to reach deeper within ourselves to find more empathy and acceptance for our colleagues’ circumstances.
Despite the challenges, we look back with satisfaction that LDIA stayed connected during these times through numerous meetings and events.
We are grateful to our members for organizing inspiring events on the occasion of the International Day of Tolerance, World Mental Health Day, and other topics such as The Future of Work in a Post COVID-19 Work Environment and ‘Love Around the World: A Global Perspective on Discrimination.’ We hope we helped keep diversity and inclusion right at the top of our business priorities, where it belongs. We look forward to a new year of disruptive dialogue and meaningful actions to advance diversity and inclusion within our firms and the wider legal community.
Proudly we present our 3rd LDIA magazine capturing all 2020 events. Happy reading!
