Ana Nestorovic is a highly skilled lawyer from Belgrade, specializing in labor and commercial law. With a successful track record of representing employees in cases of illegal labor contract determination and workplace mobbing, Ana has witnessed the shortcomings of the legal system, legal framework, and institutions in protecting the violated rights of her clients. This experience has fueled her passion for academia, leading her to pursue a research-focused career to shed light on the pressing issues faced by underprivileged members of society, including women, migrants, and ethnic and racial minorities. Currently, Ana is a doctoral candidate at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, WU, where she conducts research at the esteemed Institute for Gender and Diversity in Organizations. Her primary research focus lies in workplace discrimination, exploring the intricate correlations, interdependencies, and cause-and-effect relationships between gender, race, ethnicity, and class.
The Women in Law Initiative holds great importance as it has personally allowed me to connect with lawyers from around the world. By sharing our work and life experiences, I have realized that we face common problems and obstacles despite our different backgrounds. Being part of this sisterhood brings me deep happiness and a sense of belonging. This organization provides networking opportunities for women in law, fostering connections, and sharing experiences that contribute to professional growth and development. This initiative advocates for gender equality in the legal profession raises awareness about existing challenges and biases and works towards promoting equal opportunities for women. By joining forces through organizations like The Women in Law Initiative, we can amplify our voices and create a collective force for change, influencing policies, practices, and societal attitudes towards gender equality in law.
