GIR is looking for nominations for our upcoming Women in Investigations special, which will profile 100 remarkable women in the field of investigations. The results will be announced at a networking dinner in London in June.
We’d like to invite you to submit nominees in the survey embedded below. Let us know about the women you think deserve to be recognised and tell us in a couple sentences why these nominees stand out in the field of international investigations.
Nominees can be:
- Working in private practice at a firm or consultancy, within government agencies, or in in-house teams.
- Active at all levels: from associates to senior partners, young barristers to silks, junior legal counsel to general counsel.
- Working across the world.
Nominees can’t have been featured in GIR’s 2015 Women in Investigations Survey.
The deadline for nominations is 9 March.
From the nominations, the GIR editorial team will choose the final 100 women and contact them in the week of 26 March. All individuals will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire and to provide a high-resolution headshot for the final feature, which will be presented on the GIR website and in an upcoming issue of the magazine.
The final 100 women will be put in the spotlight at a networking dinner in London on 28 June, held after GIR’s first-ever Women in Investigations conference, which takes place during the day.
The day is organised by GIR in association with the Women’s White Collar Defence Association. The conference is chaired by Steptoe & Johnson partner Lucinda Low and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer partner Martina de Lind van Wijngaarden.
During the dinner, GIR will also present an award to one woman who has made a particularly remarkable contribution to the field of international investigations and the advancement of women in the field more generally.
