In this episode, Dr Rachel Killean (School of Law), speaks to three legal practitioners who took part in the Women as Legal Change Makers conference hosted by the School of Law Athena Swan Committee in September 2021. The three guests, Leah Treanor (a barrister-at-law in Northern Ireland and former School of Law PhD student), Claire Archbold (an Honorary Professor of Practice in Public Law and Deputy Departmental Solicitor for the Northern Ireland Civil Service), and Mara McCloskey (solicitor at The PILS Project and Chair of the Northern Ireland Law Society's Human Rights and Equality Working Group), discuss the 2022 International Women's Day theme 'Break the Bias'. In particular, they consider the IWD three mission statements: celebrating women's achievements, raising awareness against bias, and taking action for equality.
