Meet the Sydney lawyer who wants to help more women build businesses.

By Natalie Cornish

A brief stint in Perth aside, Giselle Finnane has spent her life in Sydney – where she’s now a Mergers & Acquisitions lawyer in an all-female corporate team at Marque Lawyers. Here, she opens up about finding Future Women at just the right time, the remarkable relative who inspires her and the book she believes every Aussie should read. Plus, why she’s launching her own podcast to share her smarts.

Joining Future Women was actually quite serendipitous. Earlier in the year I was on a mission to find content written by women, about women, for women. Partly my desire was to find inspirational and motivational stories; the other part was my wanting to do a sanity check on where women’s progress was really at. I know that I am incredibly lucky to work in such a progressive firm, but I realise that can be a bubble. I immersed myself in all the Future Women content I could get my hands on. You cannot imagine how excited I was when I found out that I would get to work with Future Women and Helen. Joining FW at that point was an absolute no-brainer, and I cannot get enough of the content, the social events, and the community.

You’ve hit the glass ceiling. And our paywall.

Help us smash it by becoming a Future Woman for as little as $4 a month.
