In 2017, Shruti launched tech innovation space Fuse, which is designed to help lawyers to touch, feel and understand the impact of technology. As an Asian female partner, she is acutely aware of the lack of diversity on the tech sector generally as well as specifically in LawTech. She seeks to redress this balance by providing opportunities for females within A&O. Examples include hosting and participating in a Women in Derivatives session on tech innovation and organising Code First: Girls to teach coding to emerging female leaders at A&O alongside their counterparts at a key client. As a school governor at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls in Elstree, Shruti is on the strategy committee, on which she has a focus on ensuring that the young women leaving school are well prepared for the future. She is also an active member of the all-female fundraising committee of the charity, Noah’s Ark Childrens Hospice. Shruti participates in female mentoring, including through the LegalGeek network. She works hard to support female entrepreneurs and women in STEM careers.
