Owning It: Understanding Your Unique Strengths and Value

Join the Women’s Initiative Group of León Cosgrove LLP and Alvarez, Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira LLP for a symposium featuring distinguished female professionals and executives who will share their insights into what makes women valuable assets in the workforce and how we can collectively work to enhance the legal profession as a whole. 

The symposium will consist of two discussion panels: 

Swimming with the Sharks:How to Navigate the Waters while Swimming Your Way to the Top 

Our panelists will discuss what it means to advance as a minority in a male-dominated profession. They will debate whether women and men are and/or should be assessed upon the same objective standards for purposes of promotion, and the challenges inherent in a system that uses the billable hour model as a benchmark for success. They will weigh in on whether women should aspire to assimilate into the current legal landscape, or work to change that landscape, and how to begin that process.

Making Lemonade: How to Find Your Voice and Own It

Our panelists will discuss how to identify and develop your unique strengths to position yourself as an indispensable asset in the legal profession. They will weigh in on the importance of emotional intelligence and mindfulness, and how these aide in maximizing workplace relationships and productivity. They will talk about how women’s networks can spark ideas, recharge your career, and lead to meaningful connections with others in the public and private sectors.
