2015 Daily Report - Women in Law: Making Rain, Climbing the Ladder and Forging Your Path
 

**This event is approved for CLE credit***

Keynote Address

Kristen McGuffey 
Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary
Serta Simmons Holdings, LLC


Panels include: 
 
* Money, Women and Power *
   Female BigLaw leaders share their stories of rising to the top of the big firm hierarchy. How do women develop books of business and gain influence in BigLaw, where only 17 percent of equity partners are female? That's up only two percentage points from a decade ago. Why has the gender gap persisted for so long?

* Female Rainmaking in a Man's World *
   Masters at marketing will discuss how business development and client interaction may pose unique challenges - or opportunities - for women. What pitfalls should female attorneys avoid? How can women best promote themselves? Is talking about personal matters a trap for the unwary or a chance to connect?

* Off Ramps, On Ramps and Slow Lanes *

    Panelists will discuss what law firms have done - and what more they can do - to recruit and retain female lawyers by accommodating those who desire to work less than the BigLaw norm or temporarily step away from practice. Are reduced hours arrangements a career killer or essential for retaining the best talent? What can law firms learn from other industries?
