PwC Spain and Women in a Legal World have signed a collaboration agreement to launch a podcast channel called WLW Women in Legal Talks, with the aim of commenting on the latest news and trends in the sector from the point of view of leading women in the legal field. The episodes, which will have an average length of 30 minutes, will be published on the WLW Women in Legal Talks channel on Ivoox and Spotify.
The first episodes will address industry trends for 2022, current issues such as the Labour Reform, as well as other issues related to different aspects of the legal profession. Other topics to be addressed include women’s access to Boards of Directors, the advantages and disadvantages of moving from the professional office to the in-house function, the importance of networking and the relationship with headhunters.
This initiative is part of PwC’s aim to promote female leadership, convinced of the value of diversity and the talent of women. PwC has been collaborating with companies for years through various programmes, to which this new initiative is added by Women in a Legal World.
WLW is a non-profit association whose objective is to promote and make female talent visible within the legal sector, as well as to serve as a meeting place for professional women to help and inspire each other, as well as to make professional contact with other networks of women from different sectors both nationally and internationally.
For Marlén Estévez, president of WLW and Litigation and Arbitration at RocaJunyent, “with this initiative we hope to give more voice and visibility to women from different fields of law and who are real references in the sector.”
For her part, Patricia Manca, partner at PwC T&L, the Tax & Legal advisory firm of PwC, pointed out that “we have been working for many years on the visibility of women by developing different successful programmes and we started this project with that same desire to encourage and promote the talent of women lawyers, which is a favourable social task for everyone.”
