Evolution is the theme of this year’s Corporate Counsel Women of Color conference at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. From offering tips for attorneys on how to advance their careers, stay motivated, brand themselves and read body language, all of the conference’s content was intended to help women and minority counsel to continue to evolve both personally and professionally.
The session possibly most central to the evolution theme for in-house counsel was the GC Roundtable. A trio of GCs discussed the legal trends most affecting their business today, discussed how they rose to their current positions and offered advice on how others can reach their level.
On the professional development side, Roberts stressed the importance of people learning from their mistakes and differentiating between trying and training.
“If I start doing what needs to be done, I will be prepared for what’s ahead,” he said.
