MBBA or NYWBA Member Price: $15.00 Register

When women are encouraged to develop leadership skills, the goal is often to become a rainmaker, firm leader or general counsel. While those goals are laudable, leadership encompasses much more, and may mean different things at different stages of a woman’s career. Drawing on their experiences across firms, companies and government, our panelists will focus on various aspects of leadership, including how to identify leadership opportunities, how to use leadership skills to influence others and effect change in your organization, and the different styles of leadership that women lawyers might adopt to be more effective.

Moderator: Ellen Ostrow, PhD, CMC, Lawyers Life Coach LLC
