The Women in Law Conference | Vienna | September 12-14, 2024

Bertha Boateng


Leaving litigation and working as an in house lawyer was a tough decision. Not only that but to find myself in an all masculine environment. Being the only female key management person. I had to transcend all criticisms to be effective in my role as the advisor to the Board and Management.

Due to stereotypes people normally believe that men are better lawyers than women because women are too emotional. Well, I believe women are not just better at law but other fields because we are passionate beings and this helps in us being the best representative for clients. I am passionate about women being given equal opportunities because we determine the future. We train the next generation and so the next generation will see through our lense.
