CBA Symposium on Women in the Legal Profession

On May 15, I was a panelist in the Connecticut Bar Association’s symposium, Why Women Walk. The program explored why women leave the legal profession at a high rate and what steps can be taken to stem the tide. Topics included networking, mentoring, planning your professional life, and what practices an employer in the legal profession can adopt to support women lawyers. The day was well-attended by lawyers from around the state. The event included the introduction of the Best Practices For Gender Equity program, including its Pledge of Commitment to such practices. It was an honor to be asked to participate as a panelist and to be inspired by the hard work of the CBA Women in Law Futures Task Force.

Both the program and the pledge are available on the CBA website.
