Ms. J.D. will host our inaugural LaddHer Up retreat on Thursday, October 18 - Friday, October 19, 2018. This retreat will create a unique opportunity for women law firm associates in the earlier stages of their careers to personally engage with women general counsel for transparent 2:1 career strategy discussions, as well as professional development on expanding personal networks, effectively pitching to potential clients, and building skills for a general counsel role in the future.
LaddHer Up is a unique program that will include two general counsel plenary panels, including topics like “How to Pitch to a General Counsel". Both days will provide great general counsel networking opportunities and interesting expert workshops. Thursday's programming will include inspiring keynote authors and small group recreational activities to foster informal general counsel-associate social interaction. On Friday, we will hold a career meet up where each general counsel will informally provide career advice to a few associates.
Ms. Gillette will speak at 9:30 Friday morning the 19th.
