MI Women’s Group : Women of Influence : Sunny Park, Microsoft

Tuesday 15 February 2022

Join us on February 15th at 1.30 pm GMT for an unmissable session with one of Asia’s movers and shakers, Sunny Park, Asst. General Counsel and APAC Regional Director, Corporate, External and Legal Affairs for Microsoft (now, there’s a title!).

More important than her title is Sunny’s experience, having started in law firms before going in-house, from New York to Korea to Singapore. Sunny brings a liveliness but also a wonderfully balanced perspective of “east and west” in her approach to work and life.

She is a strong advocate of women’s issues and female leadership and has done a lot to advance women’s issues and progress. She is Chair of Microsoft’s CELA Global Diversity & Inclusion initiative, she has launched women@security in collaboration with government, NGO, academia, and the private sector to build much needed cyber security capacity for women returning to work force.

She has also served as chair of IT committees for many organisations, campaigns for women to be involved and progress in IT and has been spotlighted on International Women’s Day.

As a person of influence, as a lawyer, as a woman, she has a wealth of experience to share – don’t miss it.

We look forward to seeing you there.

MI Mentor - Chris Daw QC

Wednesday 02 March 2022

Chris Daw QC was called to the Bar in 1993 and was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2013. Before taking silk, Chris built his reputation in the criminal courts, acting in high profile trials and appeals, from serious organised crime to commercial fraud and on 2nd March at 14.30 pm BST he will be sharing his experience with us.

Chris works closely with solicitors at every stage of a case and is always available to provide advice and support throughout the preparation of the difficult and sensitive cases in which he is involved.

Chris is a passionate advocate of social mobility, speaking at schools, colleges and other events, encouraging students from state schools to make it into the legal profession. He is a member of the Bar Council Barristers for Schools scheme and recently judged a sixth form advocacy competition at the Supreme Court, organised by Big Voice London. He has encouraged and mentored wannabee and young lawyers for several years.

He has also appeared on national radio and television to provide expert insight into high profile legal issues and is the author of “Justice on Trial: Radical Solutions for a System at Breaking Point,” which presents a radical set of solutions for crime and punishment, a roadmap to a future beyond the binary of good and evil.

This session will take a look at Chris’ fascinating and varied experience and he will share his advice for upcoming lawyers – not one to mince his words, this MI Mentor session will no doubt be an eye-opener.
