An Interactive Workshop:
Pushing the Envelope to Achieve Gender Equality: Leveling the Playing Field

After presenting the keynote address at MWL's Wahl Lecture on Thursday evening, Lauren Stiller Rikleen will join us again to facilitate an interactive conversation that will leave us with actionable steps we can each take to address those barriers that have impeded equitable career development and pay equity. This workshop will focus on what we, as a community of lawyers, can specifically do within our organizations to promote institutional change by identifying allies, understanding the specific internal barriers that need addressing, and implementing the changes needed to level the playing field.

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. The program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. A continental breakfast will be available. 2.0 Elimination of Bias CLE credits have been approved for this event.

Registration for An Interactive Workshop: Pushing the Envelope to Achieve Gender Equality: Leveling the Playing Field is available here.
