The 2022 Minds Count Annual Lecture will be held on Thursday 27 October at the Federal Court of Australia.
The event will start at 6pm and will be available to attend via livestream. This year we will be hearing from Berkeley Cox and Margaret Cai.
Berkeley Cox is currently a Partner in the Brisbane office of King & Wood Mallesons. Berkeley served as the Australian firm’s Chief Executive Partner from 2017 to 2022 and prior to that led the Financial Services Sector and various practice groups.
As Chief Executive, Berkeley’s strategy focussed deeply on the links between wellbeing and performance highlighting the importance of culture, team dynamics and support from leadership in fostering psychological health and safety in the workplace.
Margaret Cai is a Solicitor in the Competition team at King & Wood Mallesons and a member of the Corporate Mental Health Alliance Australia’s Early in Career Committee. In her previous role as the President of the Australian Law Students’ Association, Margaret oversaw the national roll-out of Mental Health First Aid Training for groups of law students and is particularly interested in the ways mental health and prominent issues such as bullying and sexual harassment intersect in workplaces and the wider community.
The proceedings will be opened by Chief Justice James Allsop, Federal Court of Australia who has been instrumental in supporting the Foundation’s mission since his involvement in 2018. With news of the recent appointment of Minds Count Director Justice Jayne Jagot to the High Court of Australia, we will also be inviting Her Honour to introduce the lecture for 2022.
Our Q & A session will be hosted by Jerome Doraisamy, Editor at Lawyers Weekly and Board Director of Minds Count.
We will also be announcing the recipients of the 2022 Minds Count Annual Awards, celebrating leadership and innovation in mental wellbeing in legal workplaces.
