Nominee: Carmen Thornton

Carmen Thornton

“I’m fascinated with the concept of a game-changer -the law has been a men’s game. And it needs changing. Women do not need to emulate men to be professional or competent. Femininity is neither advantage nor disadvantage -it is a fact, and we are allowed to embrace it. That is what I have done in my professional life -quite successfully I might add -and I want to encourage other women to do the same, in their own individual way. That is why I greatly appreciate this nomination -it not only reassures me that my way of doing business is the right one. It also gives me a platform to tell others: you can do it.“

Carmen Thornton is taking part in the 2020 Justitia Awards. We are grateful for her contribution.
