The NHWBA is pleased to be a partnering organization of the National Association of Women Lawyers’ 2017 Meeting the Challenge Boston Conference on Friday, September 15, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. We have arranged a special 10% discount for our members. To register, please click here and use the code MTCNHWBA2017 to get the discount.
Meeting the Challenge is a unique forum for law firms, corporations, government, nonprofits, and other stakeholders to share best practices, learn from thought-leaders, and forge meaningful and lasting connections necessary to meet NAWL’s One-Third By 2020 Challenge. Issued in March 2016, the 2020 Challenge urges the legal profession to increase the representation of women, particularly diverse women, in every branch of the legal profession.
Programming will focus on what institutions can do to increase the number of women in leadership roles, as well as sessions focused on overcoming unconscious bias and strategies for individuals to advance and flourish in their existing environments. NAWL will also unveil its 2017 Survey on the Promotion and Retention of Women in Law Firms administered by Professor Destiny Peery, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
Registration is open to NAWL members and non-members. Scholarships are available for attorneys who wish to attend, but may not be able to do so due to cost considerations.
