The Legal Diversity & Inclusion Alliance (LDIA) was launched in Brussels on January 31, 2019, with the pledge to eliminate discrimination in the workplace, to promote an inclusive organizational culture, and to take tangible actions to fulfil the goals outlined in its charter. In the meantime, LDIA counts 50 members. To kick off the festivities, LDIA hosted an #IamRemarkable workshop.
#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative that aims at empowering women and other underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond. Many of us can struggle to speak about our accomplishments, as cultural and gender modesty norms, as well as impostor syndrome, can prevent anyone from acknowledging their achievements.
LDIA is grateful to all participants for having taking the time to attend the #IamRemarkable workshop in the context of her second anniversary. It was a very interesting and inspiring experience.
A special thank you to keynote speaker Agapi Patsa, Legal Counsel for EU Affairs at Google, and Chiara Garofoli, Senior Counsel at Google, working in the International Litigation Team. Together, they co-lead the EMEA Legal team initiatives aimed at spreading #IamRemarkable within the legal world.
