    Meeting the Challenge is a forum for law firms, corporations, government, nonprofits, and other stakeholders to share best practices, learn from thought-leaders, and forge meaningful and lasting connections necessary to meet NAWL's One-Third By 2020 Challenge. Issued in March 2016, the 2020 Challenge urges the legal profession to increase the representation of women to one-third of general counsels of Fortune 1000 companies, one-third of law school deans, one-third of entering partner equity classes, and one-third of entering law firm lateral hires and to increase by one-third the number of diverse female attorneys (including women of color and LBTQI attorneys) in every segment of the legal profession.

    In addition to programming focused on what institutions can do to increase the number of women in leadership roles, Meeting the Challenge will feature sessions focused on overcoming unconscious bias and strategies for individuals to advance and flourish in their existing environments. NAWL will also unveil its 2017 Survey on the Promotion and Retention of Women in Law Firms administered by Professor Destiny Peery, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.

    Tuesday, May 9, 2017
    Renaissance Seattle Hotel

    How can women lawyers succeed, help each other succeed and, more broadly, help to create a diverse and inclusive workforce? That’s what we’ll be gathering to discuss on Tuesday, May 9 at the National Association of Women Lawyers Seattle Conference, with a powerhouse of top lawyers and leaders - from law firms, in-house legal departments, non-profits, and the government. We’ll focus on the key issues and opportunities that face women in the legal profession today and how we can work together to overcome them.

    We’ll hear from women in senior legal roles about what strategies helped them overcome professional and political challenges on their path to success and what they recommend for you to reach your full potential. We’ll focus on the changing paradigms of legal fee arrangements and how they, along with initiatives designed to enhance diversity in the workplace, such as ABA Resolution 113, create disruptive opportunities for change. For law firm lawyers, in particular, we’ll offer a session on business development, with lessons learned and best practices from three top lawyers in Seattle. In-house lawyers can learn about a topic that goes to the heart of working towards a diverse workplace – accessibility – and what in-house lawyers should know to ensure your company or organization is a leader on this issue.

    Above all, we look to celebrate and connect the growing legal community of exceptional women lawyers in the Pacific Northwest. By connecting with each other and dedicating a day to thinking about how we can enhance our professional lives, we hope to lift each other and our profession.
