Who is speaking at this event?

Jodie Hill, Managing Partner, Thrive Law

Following her mental breakdown (which she now refers to as her mental breakthrough!), Jodie Hill decided to set up her own employment law firm where her values around mental health and diversity & inclusion would be the foundations of the firm and are embodied in everything she and her Tribe do.

Thrive Law was born in 2018, when Jodie was just 29, and is uniquely positioned as the only employment law firm that adopts this unique approach blending D&I well-being with employment law and HR advice, in the UK.

Jodie is passionate about creating an environment where both she and her team can Thrive. Her mission is to educate and empower employers to create their own thriving cultures.

Outside of Thrive, Jodie is the founder and chair of This is Me Yorkshire, a global business led mental health initiative, she is a Law Care Champion, a member of Neurodiversity in Law, and in 2020 was appointed as a member of The Law Society’s Employment Law Committee.

Jodie has appeared on BBC world and regional news, Sky news, and ITV news as well as featured in The Guardian, The Times, and The Independent to name a few.
