Carly is so passionate about flexible work that she left a secure partnership in a reputable employment law firm to create an employment law offering, that helps individuals know and assert their rights to flexible work, and offers truly flexible work to its lawyers. "When I decided to leave traditional legal practice, I went on a journey to find the right type of flexible work for me. I met with top tier firms, mid tier firms and big corporates but none were the right fit, recruiters refused to put me forward for jobs I was plainly highly qualified for because of my desire to work flexibly. It was then that I realised I could create the work I wanted to do flexibly myself, and in fact, felt I had an obligation to, so I founded Resolution123. I advocate for people who have suffered from "flexism" and truly believe that by enforcing our rights at work we can make a positive change to our own lives and our community. To paraphrase something a client who is enforcing her work rights, said to me recently - it is one of our primary responsibilities as parents and humans, to make the world a better place."
