She Breaks the Law is an unparalleled global network for women leaders of legal disruption. It provides them with a forum to connect with other like-minded women, to share their personal stories, to develop their skills and knowledge through opportunities for training, mentoring and coaching and to have a safe space to create, collaborate and test ideas. It does this via four strands: She Connects, She Shares, She Develops and She Creates. The core purpose of the network is to change the narrative around female leadership and to break down silos and facilitate collaboration across the legal ecosystem. We do this by bringing women leaders together from across the globe, from different disciplines and backgrounds, all of whom are at the forefront of disruptive legal innovation. Since the launch in March 2019, the group has attracted nearly 2000 members from 28 countries and a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines – women who are leading the charge to bring about a change in the legal eco-system. It is a strong community of #lawbreakers who are breaking the mould and challenging the norm to drive positive change in the legal industry.

Carbon offset partner - Ecosphere+womeninaccountancyandfinanceawards.com/wafa2020/en/page/sustainabilityIncisive Media are committed to the journey in becoming more sustainable. By using the guidelines set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance, we aim to meet the International Standard ISO 20121. The goal is to reduce paper consumption across events and improve recycling rates, curb food waste and alter menus with an aim to include locally sourced, organic produce. We have also committed to deliver carbon offsetting at events wherever possible and provide delegates with accessible venues.
We will be closely evaluating each event and considering how we can improve in the following areas; energy, transport, water usage, recycling, economic and local environment/community.
Carbon OffsettingIncisive Media have partnered with Ecosphere+ to ensure all our remaining greenhouse gas emissions are offset. Working with Ecosphere+, we calculate the emissions from all our events, including those from event operations, venues and delegates. We then purchase the equivalent number of carbon offset credits to counter-act our activities. These credits are supporting the protection of vital rainforest in Peru, by funding conservation work and creating sustainable sources of income for locals to minimise incentives for deforestation.
