Join the Clifford Chance Armed Forces Network panel this Armistice Day!
The Clifford Chance Armed Forces Network are holding a virtual panel discussion on 11 November 2020, 13:00-14:00 GMT to mark Armistice Day and the Invictus Games Foundation will be joining them as one of their charitable partners.
Details to join the session on the day are below.
The panel, which will include Dominic Reid (IGF CEO) and Dr David Henson (IGF Trustee and Paralympic and Invictus Games medallist), will explore the work of the Invictus Games Foundation in rehabilitating wounded, injured and sick service women and men through sport and the broader work of the Foundation. Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on live sport, those watching will also have an opportunity to learn how the Foundation seeks alternative means to continue delivering support to its beneficiaries.
Staff Sergeant Melissa Coduti (US Air Force), a gold medallist in the 100m sprint and silver medallist in the heavyweight powerlifting category at the Invictus Games London 2014 will also share her experiences of competing with disability, having bilateral thoracic outlet syndrome. She was injured in 2002 during hand to hand combat training and spent the next 11 years having multiple surgeries and countless hours of rehabilitation to learn how to live and compete as an athlete, differently.
There will also be an opportunity to hear from Clifford Chance London partner, Jennifer Mbaluto. Jennifer is a partner in the TMT group and has been involved in advising the Invictus Games Foundation on a broad range of matters.
All are welcome to join in marking this important date, whether you are part of the Armed Forces community, or simply interested in hearing more about the work of the Invictus Games Foundation and the way in which Clifford Chance supports their work.
