Different Paths to Leadership for Women in Law Firms
Does it always have to begin with rainmaking and holding a sizable book of business? What does the 
path to leadership within law look like for women, spe- cifically? This lively discussion will 
showcase the journeys of several women in positions of leadership and influence within their 
respective firms, and what these different paths to leadership entailed—identifying some of the 
challenges and obstacles along this path – as well as the key characteristics/aspects/drivers that 
kept them moving forward professionally in a male-dominated environment.
