netwomen speed networking with Lifted
June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC£10
Now is the time for action.
Join us and speaker Naeema Yaqoob Sajid, who has over 20 years of experience in the Scottish legal sector. She commenced her career as a public
prosecutor and later moved to the private sector where she specialised in family law and became a partner of
a top ten Scottish law firm.
Naeema is an avid campaigner for diversity, equality and inclusion and uses her lived experience, skills and
knowledge to navigate positive change to workplace cultures and business strategies. With that aim in mind,
Naeema created Diversity+, a bespoke consultancy firm designed to assist businesses within the legal and
financial sector make improvements in their diversity and inclusion footprint, both internally and externally,
thereby better meeting the needs of their stakeholders.
Naeema is also a co-founder of The Scottish Ethnic Minorities Lawyers Association. An organisation aimed at
improving ethnic minority representation within the Scottish legal profession, at all levels.
You’ll be in a group of wonderful women who accept each other, and celebrate diversity. You’ll feel like you DO fit in, your ideas ARE valid, and that you CAN achieve your dreams. Support each other to smash those glass ceilings and be Lifted up to the place you are meant to be.
Lifted is run by Paula Shutt, an Edinburgh Marketing Consultant, Charity Director and mum of two. Paula knows what it’s like to be the only person of colour in the Boardroom, and is on a mission to change things for the better for minority women in the workplace.
