For NY - Difficulty: Experienced Attorneys Only (Non-Transitional)


The alarming statistics are being felt nationwide. The disproportionate fallout of Covid-19 continues to force women out of the workforce, away from promotions, and further down the pipeline for senior leadership positions. This timely session will examine what we can do to change the course of this devastating trend, how we can support our fellow female lawyers in the workplace, and what it will take to overcome this roadblock on the road to gender equity.

This program was recorded as part of Corporate Counsel's Women, Influence, and Power in Law Conference held on October 6th, 2021.
