Women in Law Islamabad Chapter Completes One Year
Last year on 7th July we launched our #womeninlaw Islamabad chapter and today we are celebrating its 1st birthday.
In this time our Islamabad family has grown, we started the journey with our session titled, ‘from access to advancement’ last year where sitting MNA #ShandanaGulzarKhan joined us as our Chief Guest and where Umair Baloch then secretary IHCBA graced the occasion as our Guest of Honour.
We also launched the career development series with the amazing Sarah Kazmi, had mentoring session with select candidates under a programme led by #KhadijaAli, shared several job and learning opportunities with the members, found ourselves a Chapter Lead in Islamabad in Jugnoo Kazmi and supported an event by Chevening Alumni on Gender and Law held in March.
Today, to mark the 1 year of women in law and its efforts in Islamabad, we spoke to the Legal Education and Gender Committee of Islamabad High Court Bar Association and are grateful for the opportunity to share our experiences and our journey on their platform.
Support and Solidarity are the crux of this initiative and we are happy to have received that and a lot more from everyone in Islamabad who has been so supportive and welcoming of us and of the initiative and its objectives.
Our special thanks to Advocate Rahat Kaunain Nafees, Ayesha Siddique Khan, Minahil Khan, Huma Jameel Babur, #AmnaAbbas, Benazir Jatoi, Hina Fk and all the members of the Islamabad chapter for their contribution to make this a success.
A shout out to those who supported the launch from Lahore last year and went all the way to Islamabad with us:
