This unique program is designed to empower attorneys to take charge of their own career success by enhancing strategic thinking, improving leadership and interpersonal skills, and developing personal networks. Programming is designed to foster discussion on how we can learn from one another to grow the pipeline for the next generation of diverse leaders and what unique leadership skills you need at various stages in your career—what got you here, may not get you there. During concurrent sessions, attendees will focus on ways to advance their legal expertise, improve communication and management skills, and participate in frank conversations on the ethical and professional challenges women lawyers encounter on their career paths, in addition to leadership and business development skills. Network with peers and presenters and be positioned to achieve your definition of success!
