Allies, Mentors, and Management:

Collectively Creating Opportunities for Women to Thrive  

A Joint Panel Presented by

CDL’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee and Women’s Caucus

Please join us for the first-ever CDL D&I and Women’s Caucus Joint Programme. We are excited to have an in-depth discussion on how everyone can work together, collectively, to create opportunities for women to thrive in today’s new COVID-19 legal world.   In addition to mentors, who help shape and influence women and their career path, the role of allies and management is also key in their success.

Topics will include the following:

  • How can you truly be an ally? What concrete steps can you take?
  • What is the role of a mentor – and how can mentors work with allies?
  • How can management implement changes to help women succeed?
