Leopard Solutions to Host Webinar Examining the Long Road to Partnership for Women Lawyers

April 22, 2021 @ 12:30 pm

Location: Virtual

Event Type: Webinar

The legal industry has made great strides when it comes to attracting and retaining women lawyers, but more work needs to be done.

The data in our 2020 State of the Legal Industry Report showed that as of December 31, 2020, 49% of all associates were female but only 26% of all partners were female.

Leopard Solutions hosted a virtual panel discussion with leaders in the legal industry on “Examining the Long Road to Partnership for Women Lawyers” where we discussed:

  • Why women aren’t rising to partner as quickly as their male colleagues
  • What women lawyers can do to ensure they make partner (if that’s their career goal)
  • What law firms can do to better support women lawyers on their road to partnership
  • How has the pandemic and the fact that many people are working from home changed women’s ability to make partner

Our panelists included:

  • Jill Caughie, Director of Lateral Integration at Cozen O’Connor
  • Jennifer Gillman, Founder and Legal Recruiter, Gillman Strategic Group
  • Laura Leopard, Founder and CEO at Leopard Solutions
  • Stefanie Marrone, Founder and CEO of Stefanie Marrone Consulting (moderator)
  • Alexis Robertson, Director of Diversity & Inclusion, Foley & Lardner LLP
  • Danielle Rosetti, Chief Talent Officer at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC
