Women GCs among those to attend DLA Piper’s third Global Women’s Leadership Summit

Topics to be addressed at the event are feminism, diversity, working with boards of directors, handling increasing corporate risk and developing leadership skills.

DLA Piper’s third Global Women’s Leadership Summit will bring together female in-house counsel, business leaders and lawyers from DLA Piper.

The two-day, invitation-only event will be held at the end of September in Chicago, and will focus on many issues of concern to women general counsel and law firm members.

The summit also will let female general counsel, deputy general counsel and other in-house female leaders share experiences, thoughts and best practices. Among the topics to be discussed are building and leading a legal department and career advancement. 

“We seek to create an open, inclusive environment which fosters a provocative dialogue and a sense of camaraderie, collaboration and friendship among attendees that will hopefully grow and expand far beyond the event itself,” Martini added.
