Women’s History Month 2022

Back to news

On International Women’s Day (8 March), we began publishing a new series of articles, authored by members, to capture the experiences of women working within family law. Throughout March, which is Women’s History Month, we will be sharing their stories as part of our commitment to elevate the voices of our members.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at events: Toolkit for event organisers

Resolution is committed to enhancing diversity and promoting equality of opportunity amongst all our members. So on International Women’s Day, we also launch a new toolkit for event organisers that will help to ensure that speakers and attendees reflect the diversity of all family law practitioners and communities. We want members of all backgrounds to feel welcome, accepted and included.
