Women Lawyers in Leadership 2018

Released on: Feb. 2, 2018
Running Time: 06:11:05

Although the glass ceiling has cracks, there are still obstacles to its complete shatter. More women are needed in leadership positions in the legal profession. Despite equal numbers of women entering the legal profession, female attorneys still lag in equity partnerships and leadership positions.  The institutional hurdles against women in the legal profession are common and unique among female attorneys. Join our informative conversation and hear from our panel of women attorneys who have successfully broken through. This program will benefit women attorneys wanting to take their career up a notch and strive for leadership positions to gain a competitive edge in this fast-moving field.
