Andrea Michaels makes the finals of national Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards

NDA Law’s Managing Director Andrea Michaels has been listed as a finalist in the national 2018 Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards in the Professional Services category, with final judging to take place on Friday, October 5, in Sydney.

The awards recognise Australian women who are leading the way in their professional fields with strategies that pursue growth, disruption and inclusivity.

Run by online publisher Women’s Agenda, the awards are have been running since 2013 and this year feature a high-profile judging team including ABC board member (and acting Chair) Dr Kirstin Ferguson, former CEO of David Jones Paul Zahra, and commentator Catherine Fox.

Ms Michaels said she was honoured to be recognised as an emerging leader and believes the world of legal services is changing.

“It’s great to be listed amongst some amazing business women who are striving to redefine how female leaders are perceived and who make it easier for others to follow in their footsteps.

“Certainly, the legal profession is changing, and gender equity is a topic most firms are addressing these days, but I also want to lead the way for other young women who aspire to reaching the top levels of business by actively mentoring them and providing opportunities to step up sooner to senior roles.

“We need to see more women in senior jobs, on boards, and running companies, but the workplace needs to change to support that happening with flexible work, parental leave for both men and women, and a more inclusive culture.

“I’m proud that we’ve been able to build an environment at NDA Law that supports these aims”.
