Women of Influence

Our Women of Influence programme was launched in 2015 to bring together leading female in-house counsel.


“We knew that this was an area where we could help, but even we are amazed at the success of the WOI Programme”

Sandra Gibson, LOD – Global Head of People and Corporate Operations


By listening to female in-house counsel leaders, LOD recognised a desire for more collaboration and interaction amongst peers within the in-house community, especially women in senior in-house legal positions. We created the In-House Women of Influence programme as part of our commitment to supporting the role of in-house lawyers. Since its launch, more than 200 attendees have benefited from the programme and we are now holding events across the LOD group.

Facilitated by an experienced psychologist and coach, the sessions cover a variety of topics and provide a forum for women in senior in-house positions to come together, share ideas and discuss solutions to the challenges of working in today’s legal landscape.


Whether you’re looking for peer-to-peer networking, a forum to discuss workplace issues or simply want to find out how others are dealing with challenges, our WOI programme should be on your agenda and we’d be delighted to see you at one of our events.

For further information, send us an email with your full name, location, company and position to womenofinfluence@lodlaw.com and we will be in touch.

What people have to say


“I really enjoyed it. Our professional skills are just as important as our technical legal skills, and as a senior lawyer working outside the CBD, I seek out good quality events to make the best use of limited time.  ILWOI is an excellent concept.”

Rebecca Freath
Executive Director Governance, Risk and Commercial Services at Gold Coast Health


“Thank you so much for a lovely lunch today. It just gets better and better each time.  The vibe in the room was really energising today.”

Sophie Evans

“It was fantastic – I haven’t been to an event of that calibre for a long time.   It was truly one of those events that you enjoyed and got real value out of.   Fiona had an enormous amount of sense to share and she targeted her discussion to her audience which was great.”
