The statistics are unsettling

Approximately 34% of attorneys in private law firm practice are females and only 3% of these women are in a management partnership at the largest 200 law firms. And if women make it to the top, they’ll likely be subject to gender-based income discrepancy, with female shareholders at the largest 200 firms making 89% of what their male colleagues are earning, according to the American Bar Association.

The webinar covered:

  • Exactly why female attorneys face this situation.
  • What changes attorneys can take to fight this inequality -- practical measures and mindset changes to gain control, overcome these challenges and successfully move up the career ladder.
  • Advice for attorneys thinking of setting up their own law practice – the ultimate way to control your own destiny.
