    Women Belong at the Table: Leading with Courage and Confidence

    Law firms, corporations, and governments benefit in myriad ways when women are at the helm.  Nevertheless, women are still the minority at most leadership tables.  This year’s Annual Meeting will examine the reasons behind the leadership gap and what it takes to be a courageous, confident, and effective leader.  Prominent in-house counsel, private practitioners, and government lawyers will offer concrete skills, best practices, and actionable solutions relevant to women lawyers in all legal disciplines who are looking to take and make the most of their seat at the table.  The Awards Luncheon will provide a unique opportunity to celebrate and network with over 800 lawyers from around the country as NAWL recognizes and honors leading lawyers, legal departments, and NAWL members who have made exceptional contributions to improve and diversify the legal profession.
