High Energy Education

In the years I have worked for this magazine, I've attended countless legal conferences. And they all seem to take on the same rhythm. I attend a preconference networking event at a local restaurant, and I arrive at the conference the next morning for a day of panel discussions and educational sessions, which is usually followed by a cocktail reception--then possibly a group-organized dinner at another local restaurant.

Recently, I had the opportunity to go to an event I had never attended before--the Corporate Counsel Women of Color Career Strategies Conference in Beverly Hills, Calif. For the most part, the CCWC conference followed the same routine as many other legal events, but it had a much livelier rhythm.
