On Thursday, April 22, Jennifer Gillman of Gillman Strategic Group, spoke at the Leopard Solutions Webinar – Examining the Long Road to Partnership for Women Lawyers. Gillman was joined by other esteemed panelists – Laura Leopard, Founder and CEO at Leopard Solutions; Jill Caughie, Director of Lateral Integration at Cozen O’Connor; Danielle Rosetti, Chief Talent Officer at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC; and Alexis Robertson, Director of Diversity & Inclusion at Foley & Lardner LLP. The presentation was moderated by Stefanie Marrone of Stefanie Marrone Consulting.

The legal industry has made great strides when it comes to attracting and retaining women lawyers, but more work needs to be done. As such, the panel discussed:

  • Why women aren’t rising to partner as quickly as their male colleagues.
  • What women lawyers can do to ensure they make partner.
  • What law firms can do to better support women lawyers on their road to partnership.
  • How has the pandemic and the fact that many people are working from home changed women’s ability to make partner.
