Date: October 14, 2020

Time: 1:15PM - 2:00PM

Location: Online

In keeping with best practice in light of COVID-19, the Women in Legal & Corporate Leadership Summit has gone virtual. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we adhere to our core values around diversity and inclusion, and remain anchored to our community. This summit will explore the obstacles, risks and rewards on the path to a fulfilling and productive career for women and minority leaders.

Meredith Leary will speak on "The Executive Suite & The Legal Team: Working Together to Create a More Diverse Culture" panel. Women leaders in both business and the legal profession are still rare. Because creating and maintaining a gender-balanced workforce is no longer a gesture of goodwill, but essential to financial growth, finding ways to foster diversity in corporate leadership is imperative. This panel will explore:

  • Bridging the gap between the business and legal units
  • Recruiting and sustaining female talent
  • Increasing awareness of the effects of implicit biases around female stereotypes
    • They are not tough enough
    • They are more invested in their families than their careers
  • Tips and Success stories
