Conference: Inspiring the Next Generation of Women Leaders in Dispute Resolution

EventsPosted by SWAN 2015-02-20 12:31

London, 23-24 June 2015

In 1988, Carrie Menkel-Meadow wrote that although women constituted half of all law students, it would be the turn of the century before this representation was mirrored among practitioners.

This conference will address the question, twenty-five years later, of why law firms are still losing a large percentage of their female talent to the “pipeline leak” so that 30% representation at partner level is a success story. This is an opportunity to learn from the world’s leading employers and takeaway practical solutions and new perspectives on creating gender diversity in your team.

Linn Bergman (SWAN Board) will share the lessens learned in Sweden since the creation of SWAN and Natalia Petrik (SCC Secretariat) will talk about how the SCC promotes women in arbitration. Find additional confirmed speakers here.

SWAN is a Media Partner to the Conference.
