About the Retreat

Join the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession for our Launching Leaders Retreat. As part of the Retreat you will develop a plan for your own path to leadership with ample time for health, wellness, rejuvenation and networking opportunities throughout the conference. Learn from the chairs of our research projects and other accomplished women lawyers how to map out a personal plan for your advancement in the profession. Getting to the next level requires building good teams to work with you along the way, creating your own advisory team of men and women, creating a more level playing field in your workplace, and navigating workplace dynamics to claim your own position of power.


We have a range of exciting and informative sessions on our schedule. Check back here frequently to see confirmed speakers and other updates.


Registration is anticipated to open early November 2019. Link will be available on this page. For questions, please contact Commission staff member, Laura Tannous, at
