A Unique Conference with a Fresh Format

The Only National Forum Facilitating Women-to-Women Exchange on Current Legal Issues.

The event is comprised of three distinct and executive level events.

Executive Leadership Forum: By Invitation Only (B.I.O.)

September 17, 2014

The objective of this symposium is to provide specifically identified women in-house counsel an opportunity to enhance their knowledge of forecasting regulatory and reputational risk, and to gain crucial insights on ways to managing interactions with their boards of directors. Women will be invited from a pool of in-house counsel recommended as being capable of becoming a general counsel within 3 years. Recommendations will be accepted from sitting general counsel and senior executives. Attendees will have exclusive access to thought leaders sitting on the boards of publicly traded companies on what it takes to successfully manage their board of directors by providing insights into:

  • Ways to increase their effectiveness in the boardroom
  • Techniques to developing and building trust, credibility and rapport with the board
  • Increased knowledge and  expertise on methods to managing corporate governance issues

Outside counsel in attendance will have an unique opportunity to gain important insight into the needs of general counsel and acquire vital techniques to properly address them.

This program will include panels and an action learning exercise requiring strategic thinking applied to an enterprise wide business problem.

Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference

(Open to all Registrants)
September 18-19, 2014
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 35 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
  • Litigation & Investigations
  • Intellectual Property
  • Government Relations & Public Policy
  • Global Litigation & Transactions
  • Labor & Employment

The agenda for these programs is currently in development. Please check our website for developments or subscribe to receive event updates.
