Join us for our 6th annual Women in Law event and learn about how successful leaders in law live, work, thrive and succeed with intention. Successful leaders do not achieve success by accident. They take advantage of opportunities but also set goals, make plans, and determine priorities. They are flexible, but they are intentional about how they spend their time and where they put their focus. The presenters  examine the following in conversation:

  • Finding your career and life path, with intention.

  • Setting your priorities, with intention.

  • Creating a seat at the table, with intention.

  • Taking care of yourself, with intention.

  • Negotiating and navigating compensation, with intention.
