Angela Jackman and Harini Iyengar

Don't miss this incredible opportunity to hear about and discuss equality in the workplace with two women at the forefront of challenging discrimination. After recent cases on dress codes in the workplace and cases and campaigns about BAME hair at school, WE are delighted that Angela Jackman and Harini Iyengar will be joining us to talk about their work and discuss what WE can do to achieve equality in the workplace.

Angela Jackman is a Partner at Simpson Millar Solicitors where she specialises in mental capacity, education and public law. She is also a Senior Lecturer at The City Law School. Angela is a member of the Law Society’s Human Rights Committee and an expert panel member for the Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants. Angela had conduct of the landmark Supreme Court case  A and B v Secretary of State for Health regarding the then inability of women from Northern Ireland to obtain abortion services on the NHS in England. The case, which is being appealed to the European Court of Human Rights, was instrumental in a successful political campaign which has resulted in the government granting concessions to women from Northern Ireland. Angela provided written evidence for the House of Commons Joint Petitions and Women and Equalities Committee 2017 on dress codes in the workplace.

Harini Iyengar was called to the Bar in 1999, seven months’ pregnant, and is now ranked in Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500 as a leading expert in Education, Employment and Equality law. She gave evidence as a Legal Expert to the House of Commons Inquiry into Workplace Dress Codes and regularly appears on Sky News, BBC and other media as an equalities expert. Harini is a Governing Bencher of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple and sits on the steering group of the Temple Women’s Forum and on the Bar Council Retention Panel of the Equality Diversity and Social Mobility Committee. She is an Independent Governor of London Metropolitan University and an External Trustee of Oxford University Student Union. Harini is the lone parent of three children.
