The past couple of months, I have been quite busy attending various industry events. On May 24, InsideCounsel--along with several sponsors--hosted its first annual Transformative Leadership Awards dinner in Chicago. At the dinner, InsideCounsel honored successful women in the corporate legal profession. I co-chaired the event with Michele Coleman Mayes, chief legal officer at Allstate Insurance Co., and it was well-attended and well-received.
Piggybacking the Transformative Leadership Awards dinner was InsideCounsel's 10th Annual SuperConference on May 25 and 26. Like the nine previous SuperConferences, this year's event was full of networking opportunities, as well as sessions boasting valuable information--from the legal department's role in managing social media to the continued challenges with diversity. See our coverage of the 2010 SuperConference in this issue.
