6:15pm – 7:15pm Strong Alone, Unstoppable Together: A Dual-Industry Perspective on Women’s Career Advancement
The path to partnership for women in professional services is a steep climb riddled with many competing priorities along the way. It is especially difficult for women seeking leadership positions in accounting and law firms as both industries are ripe for technology disruption, are relatively resistance to change, and still require a lot of direct, individualized interaction to advance. This session will explore solutions in overcoming the challenges women face to partnership in these firms. Our expert faculty will take this opportunity to learn from one another while considering issues such as removing gender bias from talent systems, negotiating clients demands around D&I, creating structural support mechanisms for women’s advancement to partnership, and in using cutting-edge tools to increase women’s books of revenue.
