Women in Law: Redefining Success 2023 Series

Thursday, March 9, 2023
11:00 AM PST

The great redefinition of success in law is here. And women are driving that change.

“What the pandemic did was give us time to think about what we really value, and the place of work in our lives. Which is to say, there’s something deeper at the heart of this great awakening: a collective redefinition of success.”
- Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO of Thrive Global

Join our group of women and allies in the practice of law as we embrace this “once-in-a-generation opportunity” to redefine the way we work, focusing on the parts that make us thrive and leaving behind the parts that don’t.

We’ll meet in a series of webinar sessions on a quarterly basis throughout 2023. Drop into any one session that speaks to you or choose to join them all.         

Session 1: “Redefining The Career Path”
Session 2: “Redefining Your Domain”
Session 3: “Redefining Your Personal Brand”
Session 4: “Redefining Your Thrive”


In Session 1: “Redefining the Career Path," three women attorneys will share their not-so-linear legal career experiences in a roundtable format. We’ll talk about taking steps off the traditional path, creating your own opportunities, and forging individual definitions of success in your career. Then, we’ll facilitate smaller breakout room discussions where attendees can connect, share insights and take inspiration from fellow women attorneys who may be redefining success themselves.

The goal of this session is to spark meaningful conversation and build a strong network of allies and accountability partners who can help each other clearly define and build a fulfilling practice for 2023 and beyond.
