WILEF PARIS INAUGURAL EVENT:
Ambition: The Fuel for Your Career Engine (or Why Talent Isn’t Enough)
L’ambition: un moteur essential pour votre carrière? (ou “pourquoi votre seul talent ne suffit pas”)
Ambition, drive, grit, perseverance, “leaning in.” Studies suggest that marital and parental status do not significantly differ for women who aspire and women who don’t. Is ambition a prerequisite for professional success?
Join our discussion with female leaders on how women can act to advance their own careers. From their varied perspectives, our moderator and panelists will address the role of ambition in their own success and in the success of junior lawyers with whom they have interacted. They will also discuss the role of risk-taking in one’s career trajectory; how to communicate ambition in the face of unconscious bias and in double-bind predicaments; and the existence of generational differences in the way women view their professional goals.
More and more women across all fields are breaking through the barriers set by society and by themselves. Let’s discuss and take action.
