Hotel Monaco Philadelphia
533 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106

New Jersey Women Lawyers Association join as a P2P co-sponsor! NJWLA Members receive a 10% discount on registration.

Supporting its Challenge to increase the percentage of women equity partners to 30% by 2015, and building on the success of its inaugural program conducted in September 2012, NAWL is hosting its second P2P program targeted to women lawyers on the brink of equity partnership at their respective law firms. Specifically designed for women income partners, counsel and associates, this program combines handson learning with insights and guidance from distinguished panel members on the new skills, strategies and priorities that women lawyers need to develop to become an owner of the business. The program allows for frank conversation and exchange of ideas on the ethical and professional challenges women lawyers encounter in the pipeline to equity partnership. Guidance on such topics as gender bias, effective and ethical client management and the risk of internal firm politics will set the stage for participants to learn how to align their skills to their particular firm’s strategy, culture and position in the marketplace.

SPEAKERS INCLUDE

(with cocktail reception immediately following)


Supporting its Challenge to increase the percentage of women equity partners to 30% by 2015, NAWL is launching a new program targeted to women lawyers on the brink of equity partnership at their respective law firms. Specifically designed for women income partners, counsel, and senior associates, this program combines hands on learning with insights and guidance from distinguished panel members on the new skills, strategies, and priorities that women lawyers need to develop to become an owner of the business. The P2P Program allows for frank conversation and exchange of ideas on the ethical and professional challenges women lawyers encounter on their path to equity partnership. Guidance on such topics as gender bias, effective and ethical client management and the risk of internal politics will set the stage for participants to learn how to align their skills to their particular firm’s strategy, culture and position in the marketplace.

Premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Miss Representation is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom and exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.
