Women's LEADERSHIP Initiative

Alumni sitting on group discussion

The College of Law is committed to its Women's Leadership Initiative – an initiative focused on providing women lawyers with the leadership training and professional network they need to successfully navigate the profession. The Women's Leadership Initiative moves into its 4th year of programming with a full slate of opportunities available to its alumni and friends.

Rising Strong Circles

Unfortunately, we remain in unprecedented times. How do we rise? This year's Women's Leadership Initiative will kickoff on Tuesday, September 6th from 4:30-6:00 p.m. with wine, cheese, and a book discussion of Brene Brown's Rising Strong and how we might apply its lessons to our post-pandemic lives. Can't attend in person? Virtual circles are available too. Just select that option upon registration. Cost is $25 and includes a copy of the book delivered to you by August 15th.

Now. Leadership Cohorts

The Now. Leadership Cohort focuses on teaching leadership skills to mid-career attorneys - those who have just become partners or are on the brink of partnership; attorneys who are taking on leadership roles within their firms or organizations. In addition to learning key leadership skills and theories, participants will apply them to situations in which they routinely find themselves and build supportive relationships with cohort members that last well beyond the formal cohort gatherings. Both in person and virtual cohorts are available. Cost to participate in the cohort is $500 and space is limited to 15 per cohort.
