Judge Sujata (Su) Sharma is an incredible woman who we absolutely want to recognise for IWD2017. In 1988, Su was the first Asian lawyer at her magic circle law firm and has helped break down barriers for women of colour in the legal profession. Not only that, Su’s career as a construction lawyer, an area known to be dominated by men, Su actively promoted diversity within her firm. Now, an employment judge, and business women with her own legal practice, Su attributes her fantastic career to being a team player, having a strong work ethic, being approachable and ensuring the law is understood by all.
