How Seema is building a better working world
“My role is to protect and help enable clients across the globe and their people as they navigate complex regulatory frameworks at a time of continued disruption, reframing collective futures and doing better around unseen individual challenges, unconscious bias, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and sustainability. I am proud to co-lead our initiatives around refugee employment integration and have throughout my career acted pro bono extensively in cases supporting refugees, families in difficult cross-border circumstances, internally displaced persons and those at risk of destitution.”
