Some quotes from attendees:

  • This was my first conference, I really enjoyed it and it was great to see such a focus of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
  • I felt the speakers were excellent and felt my morale improved as it went on, it made me feel valued as a magistrate.
  • The themes of equality and the changing face of the magistracy were really important to me and I felt included and supported.
  • Fantastic speakers, really relevant to myself and the bench. Great to see equality and diversity be at the front rather than an afterthought, I felt proud and valued to be part of the justice system.
