Learning to Lead: What Really Works for Women in Law

By Sara Dionne

On Thursday, July 10, 2014, at 1 p.m. Eastern time, the ABA Litigation Section Woman Advocate Committee will be presenting a Roundtable entitled “Learning to Lead:  What Really Works for Women in Law.” During this telephonic presentation, participants can sit comfortably at their own desks while listening to Gindi Vincent discuss leadership techniques that help women in all fields develop in all aspects of their careers. During this program, Vincent will discuss theories from the book and share practical tips and tricks for leadership success. 

In addition to authoring the book Learning to Lead: What Works for Women in Law, which was published by the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, Vincent is president of the Women’s Energy Network, and counsel at ExxonMobil. She has over 16 years of experience as an environmental attorney, previously advising energy companies on complex environmental challenges at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman (and beginning her career in Fort Worth at Cantey & Hanger).

You can register for this program here. In addition, you can email your questions either in advance or during the presentation to meeting cochair Robin Luce Herrmann.
