Women's Bar Association ("WBA") of the District of Columbia Initiative on the Advancement and Retention of Women - Navigating the Corporate Matrix: Advancing Women In-House Counsel

March 10, 2010 • Washington, DC

This is the next phase of the WBA’s groundbreaking Initiative on Advancement and Retention of Women – Navigating the Corporate Matrix: Advancing Women In-House Counsel. Phase I focused on the overall retention and advancement of women in law firms, while Phase II focused on the challenges facing women of color in the profession. Those phases of the Initiative, which resulted in the publication of Creating Pathways to Success and Creating Pathways to Success for All, respectively, have drawn national attention and acclaim. The WBA is very excited to be following up on the information gathered and facts learned through Phases I and II to address the unique challenges facing women in in-house law departments.

The Navigating the Corporate Matrix program is the work of the WBA’s Task Force on the Advancement and Retention of Women and In-House Counsel Committee, with advice and input from an Advisory Board of nationally recognized experts in the field and in-house counsel from a range of industries, who are committed to advancing women in-house counsel. This day long summit will take place at American University Washington College of Law. The goal is to have the community again place itself on the national map as forward-thinkers whose leaders have come together, listened to the experts present the latest objective research, shared best practices and frustrations, and undertaken a frank self-appraisal of how to move the ball forward in the continuing effort to improve retention of women attorneys and their advancement to the highest ranks of our profession.

Monica Parham is Co-Chair and Crowell & Moring is a sponsor.
