Inspiring inclusion at the Bar for International Women’s Day (Eleena Misra KC and the women chairs of Bar Council’s committees speak to The Bar Council)


The theme of International Women’s Day 2024 is #InspireInclusion. The Bar Council have asked the women chairs of Bar Council’s committees to tell us who inspires them and what they – and their committees – are doing to inspire the next generation of women at the Bar.

Answering our questions are: (Old Square Chambers) Eleena Misra KC, Chair of the Law Reform Committee; Amrit Kaur Dhanoa, Chair of the Young Barristers’ Committee; Samantha Singer, Co-Chair of the Pro Bono and Social Responsibility Committee; Heidi Stonecliffe KC, Chair of the Employed Barristers’ Committee; Rachel Crasnow KC, Co-Chair of the Equality, Diversity and Social Mobility Committee.

The theme of International Women’s Day 2024 is #InspireInclusion – what does this mean to you?

Amrit Kaur Dhanoa: For me, it signifies a call to action for promoting diversity, equality, and respect for all individuals. It highlights the importance of fostering an environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and included, irrespective of their background, identity, or experiences. We should celebrate the achievements of women from all walks of life, whilst recognising the ongoing efforts needed to break down barriers and to create a more inclusive society.

Eleena Misra KC: Encouraging inclusion by leading from the front, by my actions not just my words. . .
