Roberta was admitted to the bar in 2004, after having spent two years in a leading law firm, during which time she gained experience in general civil and commercial law. Following that, she joined the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality as Legal Advisor. Between 2008 and 2017 she served as Director of Victim Support Malta, an NGO which provides support to victims of crime. Other past roles include serving as a member of the Guardian for Future Generations, a high level body set up under the Sustainable Development Act, Chairperson of the Platform for Human Rights Organisations in Malta, and member of the Commission on Domestic Violence.
Recently, Dr. Lepre has been commissioned by Government to draft a new Equality bill, which is to be discussed in Parliament in the coming weeks. She is a well known contributor in the media and is regularly invited to address various conferences and seminars. She is also a practicing advocate.
Roberta set up Weave Consulting in 2007, as a boutique firm originally focusing on equality and diversity. Over the years, and following successful completion of various projects, Weave Consulting evolved to offer CSR services, particularly CSR audits to forward thinking companies – the offer being developed on the firm belief that a well implemented CSR strategy produces tangible solutions to a variety of challenges which business must overcome in order to remain competitive.
