Stefanie Yuen Thio comments in ALB: “It takes a village: To truly achieve gender equality, many must play their part”

TSMP Law Corporation Joint Managing Partner Stefanie Yuen Thio was quoted in a story on what law firms are doing for female empowerment published by Asian Legal Business. In the International Women’s Day piece, she said that TSMP Law Corporation has an active women’s empowerment initiative which includes large-format events. In 2019, the firm organised Women’s Mentoring on Speed, which was attended by senior industry leaders as well as younger lawyers.

“While big events can reach a lot of people, we believe that small group mentoring is just as important, as an avenue for younger women to ask more sensitive questions and share their specific challenges,” she said.

She added that women in powerful positions should do what they can to clear the path for their juniors. “As the joint managing partner, with a very supportive set of partners, I have a lot of leeway to innovate and roll out initiatives that work. I’ve been very blessed by that.”
