There is no passion to be found in playing small

Heidi Nash-Smith

Partner + Head of Pro Bono and Community

About Me

I have led Wotton + Kearney’s pro bono and community program, ‘Community Footprint’ since its inception in January 2012. I champion pro bono and community contribution with passion, leading by example and engaging those around me to support and engage in the program.

On the pro bono side, we seek to use our legal skills to help address unmet legal need in our community. Our charitable efforts provide the opportunity for all our staff to contribute, through volunteering, fundraising and advocacy. Each year I carefully develop a program that supports and furthers the work of our nominated charity.

I also lead Wotton + Kearney’s Environment and Sustainability Committee, tasked with reducing our carbon footprint and developing sustainability initiatives across our offices.

I am a passionate advocate for gender equality, leading our Women’s Leadership Committee and helping to introduce and implement initiatives to support our staff.

I strive to inspire and contribute. Outside of work I volunteer my time to support the causes I am passionate about. I fundraise, typically by running, hiking and most recently cycling, a ridiculous distance, pushing myself so that I can draw attention to many amazing causes.
