The 3rd annual Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference has 2 distinct tracks:

1) October 28th: Executive Leadership Forum: By Invitation Only (B.I.O.)

B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) is a one-day forum offered the day preceding the Women Influence & Power in Law Conference (WIPL). B.I.O. is an advanced leadership development program that uses assessment tools, on-site executive coaches, and talent development professionals to educate attendees about themselves and their journey on their development plans. The goal is for women in-house counsel to obtain a transferable and translatable set of core competencies required for the next generation of General Counsel. These include:  
  • Understanding your strengths and weaknesses
  • How to communicate and collaborate with business leaders 
  • Building credibility
  • Leadership skills, including executive presence, influencing, and agility 

B.I.O. is designed to practice the skills required for a General Counsel role, assist participants in creating their own playbook/roadmap for their career, and provide overall leadership development for participants.

B.I.O. Registration Requirements:

  • In-House Counsel: Must be 1-2 levels down from the General Counsel
  • Outside Counsel: Must be Senior Counsel or Partner
Please note: If you do not meet these requirements, the conference producers reserve the right to cancel this portion of your registration and refund the B.I.O. cost of your Women, Influence & Power in Law conference registration. 

Registration is limited to 120 people in order to get the maximum amount of networking and interaction.

2) October 29-30: Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference (WIPL)

Open to both in-house and outside counsel

This unique event is the only national forum facilitating women-to-women exchange on current legal issues. This conference is led and facilitated almost exclusively by women, encouraging an exchange between women in-house counsel and women outside counsel on the day’s most pressing legal challenges. With 30 sessions, the event will have a substantive focus, covering topics that matter most to corporate counsel, outside counsel, and public sector attorneys.

The Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference is not a forum for lawyers to discuss so-called “women’s issues.” It is a conference for women in-house and outside counsel to discuss current legal topics, bringing their individual experience and perspectives on issues of:
  • Governance & Compliance
  • Investigations & Cross-Border Disputes
  • Litigation
  • Intellectual Property, Privacy & Cybersecurity
  • Managing Global Challenges
  • Executive Leadership
  • Managing Small Legal Departments
  • Labor & Employment

Additional Event: 
October 28th evening: The Transformative Leadership Awards Dinner (TLA)

Join hundreds of in-house counsel, law firm partners and legal consultants to honor the empowerment and diversity of General Counsel and Law Firm partners who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing women in corporate law.
