Panel Discussion hosted by Arnold & Porter and WLAM (Women Lawyers and Mothers)

The route to partner is longer than it used to be and arguably more is expected of partners than in the past. The statistics show women still lag behind their male peers in terms of career progress. Much has been written on the reasons, which at least in part include family life, fertility issues, maternity leave and the realities of flexible working.

Hear from a panel of leading city female partners as they share their journey to partnership, as well as some tips and pitfalls of progressing in the profession, including:

  • their journey to partnership
  • how they handled and overcame the setbacks and hurdles they encountered
  • insights into how their planned their careers to achieve their goals
  • the steps they took to build their case for promotion
