Panel discussion: Defining your own success as a lawyer

The stereotype of a successful female lawyer is often limited to traditional measures of success, alongside a perception that women need to be hard, masculine and unemotional in order to succeed as leaders.

This panel discussion seeks advice from prominent leaders on how to become successful in a male dominated industry, define your own career path and develop into an authentic leader.

  • Success strategies from industry leaders
  • Methods for defining your own measures of success
  • Exploring different career paths
  • Being a successful female lawyer whilst being authentic to yourself

Leveraging flexible work practices to support better work-life balance

The benefits of a work-life balance and flexible work schedule are well known and an important factor in supporting women juggling their careers with their personal responsibilities.

How can you take advantage of flexible hours without being sidelined? This session will discuss:

  • How to evolve traditional legal work models to develop a more agile and flexible profession
  • Bridging the disconnect between availability and use of flexible work policies
  • Moving beyond an industry culture that values long hours and presenteeism
  • Leveraging technology to increase productivity and support a flexible work life

RODA’S 5TH ANNUAL DIVERSITY CONFERENCE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE OBA: RESILIENCE IN CHALLENGING TIMES Dec. 9, 2019

OBA AND ROUNDTABLE OF DIVERSITY ASSOCIATION (RODA) PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

 

The RODA-OBA Annual Diversity Conference returns by popular demand to provide thought-provoking, practical discussions on current issues affecting diverse lawyers and allies.

 

The need for lawyers to be champions for diversity is acute, but the lack of consensus around lawyers’ professional obligations and how to promote equality, diversity and inclusion within the profession has been both exhausting and troubling. Conflict and division in broader society is reflected in law firms and legal workplaces, as lawyers and clients grapple with these issues. Building resilience as individuals and as a profession, is key to deepening our capacity to deal with these challenges.

 

This year’s day-long conference will examine how to build consensus across difficult divides, and recent developments related to equality and inclusion. We will explore the challenges lawyers are dealing with and ways to build resilience. Hear from fellow lawyers and other professionals, and be inspired by their experiences and the strategies they have used. Choose from sessions in both substantive and career tracks that will address the often-complex issues facing equity-seeking and racialized lawyers and their allies.
