Women's Bar Association of the District of Columbia: Carving Pathways to Success

Speaking Engagement

The Women's Bar Association of the District of Columbia is presenting a showcase event, entitled Carving Your Path to Success. The successful career pathways of lawyers who took roads other than direct advancement through traditional law firms will be explored.Many women lawyers face stumbling blocks on the road to successful development into senior partners and rainmakers at traditional law firms. As a result, many women attorneys choose, or perhaps fall onto, off-ramps that eventually lead to interesting, sometimes varied, but ultimately very rewarding careers, with stints in government, non-profit organizations, smaller firms, solo careers, political staffs, in-house counsel positions and even non-legal careers. These less traveled roads have resulted in powerful and prestigious positions held by women, including positions in academia, political and career government offices, judgeships and CEOs. Indeed, some of these women have circled back into private practice and have become senior partners and rainmakers at traditional law firms.

WilmerHale partner, Jamie Gorelick will be a featured speaker at the event, hosted by the Women's Bar Association of the District of Columbia.
