How do we begin to make those decisions more conscious? How do women create our own realities, write stories rather than read other's, design our own definition of "success"? What are the tools we need to share with younger generations to change our collective futures?Yogis, lawyers, activists, business-owners, pioneers, wives, mothers, meditators and daughters all come together to reinforce the truth that only we can and should be the definer of what success means for each of us. Galvanize power to do this in our own lives by sharing with other women who care about creating better futures for all women, and start with themselves.Caroline CounselIn the 152 year history of the Law Institute of Victoria, the peak body representing the solicitors of Victoria, there are only 5 women who have been made President.
