Louise Woods, Partner, Vinson & Elkins
19 March 2021
In this episode, we hear from Louise Woods, Partner at Vinson & Elkins’ London office. Louise provides a wealth of knowledge in practical projects aimed at improving inclusivity. Through her work in the non-profit ArbitralWomen and the projects run at V&E, she has seen the benefits of supporting women, and men, through the vulnerable return-to-work period after the arrival of a first child. She provides helpful advice for others who may be formulating similar projects aimed at inclusion, and encourages those with influence to support their junior female employees who may not believe in themselves enough. This episode is a must-listen for anyone aiming to institute inclusive initiatives at their organization. Enjoy!

She has experience of representing clients across a wide range of industry sectors, in particular in relation to international energy disputes.
