women’s leadership

Empowering women lawyers to take their seat at the table

Getting A step ahead

Our workshops are led by a female lawyer—one who experienced firsthand while at an Am Law 100 firm what it means to define a career in law as a woman.  This unique perspective helps us design impactful retreats and workshops that equip female lawyers to achieve ambitious career goals, step confidently into leadership roles, and rise to the top of the profession.

Workshops

We deliver thoughtful, timely, and relevant workshops for women lawyers tailored to your firm’s specific needs.

Our workshops are energizing and interactive and use group discussions and self-reflection exercises to generate actionable insights.

  • Time Management and Delegation for the Overscheduled Lawyer

Our programs are perfect for in-person and virtual events like law firms’ women’s initiatives and intensive offsites such as leadership retreats, conferences, and strategic planning sessions.

Panel Discussions: Women Learning From Other Women

What works for one woman attorney won’t necessarily work for another—and differences in personality, firm, and career stage all inform what a strategic career plan or leadership style looks like for a given individual. Panel discussions demonstrate the diversity of leadership styles among successful female attorneys and provide a forum for honest discussion. After all, there’s no one right way to be a woman in power. We guide our clients in choosing panelists, conduct preparation meetings with each member, and moderate the panels to elicit stories, advice, and support for our audience.

Coaching

The cumulative effects of holding a marginalized identity in a high-pressure workplace can be exhausting. Coaching provides support and insight for women attorneys so they can navigate bias and achieve success without burning out. Our one-on-one coaching programs for women provide wisdom and guidance from experienced professionals intimately familiar with the realities of working as a woman in a male-dominated field. We focus on generating insights that promote career acceleration and advancement and reduce turnover among female attorneys.

Talent Development

In order to retain top talent, firm leadership must also be empowered to recognize and develop women leaders. We help firms develop the talent they need to increase revenue, meet client demands for a diverse team of lawyers, and sustain a positive, growth-oriented culture.

Towards a More Equitable Profession

Women in the legal field face unique challenges. A lack of women in leadership and a loss of talent hurts not just individual lawyers, but also law firms and the legal profession as a whole.

The good news: there is a solution. We provide tools to help women lawyers succeed and help law firms to attract and retain talented women attorneys.
