Join us for A Seat at the Table: Celebrating 20 Years of Female Leadership. In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the NHWBA is proud to hold a half-day symposium featuring and celebrating female leadership on May 11, 2018 at the Puritan Conference Center in Manchester, New Hampshire from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Please join us as we celebrate not only the accomplishments of the NHWBA over the past 20 years, but also the accomplishments and future advancement of women in the legal community and in our state overall.
The symposium will offer attendees the chance to attend breakout sessions on “seizing a seat at the table,” featuring panels of some of New Hampshire’s prominent female attorneys and business leaders. The event will culminate in a formal seated lunch, featuring Heather Hubbard as the Keynote Speaker. Heather Hubbard is a nationally-known attorney, speaker, author, and strategic advisor, and host of her successful weekly podcast, Hustle & Flow. Her Keynote will provide unfiltered, authentic, and inspiring advice about success in the legal industry as a female leader, and will be the highlight of the event.
