The Law Society is hosting a breakfast session on Tuesday 14 May to mark mental health week.

The aim of the session is to explore and better understand wellbeing through the lens of lawyers from different diversity strands.

LGBT+ and BAME lawyers will join lawyers with disabilities and women lawyers to share insights and draw on the impact of mental health across different demographic communities.

Panellists include Bridget Garrood, parter at Cartridges Law, Kayleigh Leoni, employment law solicitor, and Umar Kankiya, senior associate and head of mental health at Sternberg Reed.

This event is open to anyone who has an interest in wellbeing.

The session will also cover the role senior management has in embedding wellbeing good practice in the workplace.
