This conference is designed for lawyers of all levels to “elevate” their careers while in the Mile High City.  The conference will explore how women lawyers at all levels can advance their careers, with programming on both substantive changes in the law and embracing our diversity and using it to our advantage, rather than trying to fit in to a traditional mold.  The programming will include a fireside chat with local GCs and an interactive presentation-skills session.  During concurrent sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about recent changes in Title IX, board service opportunities and news laws relating to gender diversity on boards, recent trends in hiring and salaries for both in-house counsel and outside-counsel, and communication skills with an intergenerational panel of women lawyers.  The program will conclude with a panel of Denver women on the bench and a networking reception, where attendees will have the opportunity to network with peers and presenters alike.  The primary goal of the conference is to help each attendee take the next steps toward achieving her own definition of professional success.
