In the first of this three-part series with Clifford Chance Dubai, Partner Jack Hardman is joined by Donya Fredj, Senior Legal Counsel at G42. They discuss the role of in-house lawyers and how to focus on diversity and inclusion in tech companies.
Donya shares some of the ways they maintain a culture of inclusion at G42, including starting from the top to educate leaders and giving employees a safe space to voice concerns.
She emphasises the importance of risk mitigation and says a key responsibility for in-house lawyers in tech companies is taking ownership of the area where regulation intersects with tech.
