mtl: Hi Elaine, tell us about where you have worked?
Elaine: I planned to go to the Bar but in the end decided to train at Norton Rose, as in the late 1970's choosing to be a solicitor instead meant being able to combine a legal career with having a family.
Elaine: I still put in significant effort and hours and commitment, but on a much more flexible basis.
Elaine: The difference between hitting the glass ceiling and moving on is whether you get involved in bringing in work.
Elaine: Communicate, be cheerful and try not to bring your stress home with you!There is nothing like a smile and positive thinking to influence a child.
Elaine: It should of course be more possible.
Elaine: No, I have had fun, I've enjoyed my work and I've had the flexibility to be able to mix it successfully with my family life.
mtl: Thank you for your time Elaine.
Elaine is also a member of the The Hidden Brain Drain taskforce led by economist Sylvia Ann Hewlett and made up of 19 global corporations.
