About the Women in Law Summit
Women have comprised nearly half of all law students and incoming associates at law firms for many years, yet they remain outnumbered by men in the senior ranks of law firms, corporate law departments and other practice settings. We can work towards achieving more gender equality in the profession by learning from one another and supporting each other in our careers.
Through a combination of inspiring keynotes, a panel discussion by accomplished women in the legal profession and a break-out session, the Women in Law Summit seeks to promote diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and equip attendees with the skills needed to succeed.
Featured Speakers include:
Hon. Janet DiFiore, Chief Judge of New York Court of Appeals
Judge DiFiore’s address will center upon the American Bar Association study entitled: You Can’t Change What You Can’t See
Marsha Haygood, Author and Empowerment Coach
Marsha is a well known thought leader who encourages success in individuals and corporations alike. Experienced in public speaking and corporate engagement, she knows how to translate leadership theory into practice. Marsha has been featured as one of the elite in Speaking of Success, a book on building leadership, along with best-selling authors Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard and Jack Canfield.
