Honoring our Legacy
WWL recently hosted an event “Honoring our Legacy” which included a reception for past WWL presidents, current WWL board members and participants in the “Her Day in Court” film. Both the original and updated versions of "Her Day in Court" were shown. We thank K&L Gates for generously donating the location and refreshments.
Plugging the Leaky Pipeline, Part V: Leadership Styles for Women
The business world is increasingly rejecting the traditional, top-down approach to leadership in favor of a collaborative leadership style. Many applaud this shift as advantageous toward women, who are traditionally seen as more collaborative, inclusive, and team-oriented. But too strong of a collaborative approach - such as asking for permission, appearing indecisive, or failing to assert a strong point of view - can be seen as weakness. This panel will discuss the characteristics of collaborative leadership, its benefits and pitfalls, what it looks like in the legal world, and how it can successfully be employed by women seeking positions of power and leadership in the legal community.
