An Interactive Workshop:
Pushing the Envelope to Achieve Gender Equality: Leveling the Playing Field

Please join us Friday morning at Lindquist & Vennum LLP (80 South 8th Street, 3rd Floor IDS Conference Room, Minneapolis) for a unique workshop, focused on the identification, prioritization, and specific implementation measures we can undertake to push the envelope for meaningful change toward gender equality.  

hover textAfter presenting the keynote address at MWL's Wahl Lecture on Thursday evening, Lauren Stiller Rikleen will join us again to facilitate an interactive conversation that will leave us with actionable steps we can each take to address those barriers that have impeded equitable career development and pay equity. This workshop will focus on what we, as a community of lawyers, can specifically do within our organizations to promote institutional change by identifying allies, understanding the specific internal barriers that need addressing, and implementing the changes needed to level the playing field.

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. The program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. A continental breakfast will be available. 2.0 Elimination of Bias CLE credits have been approved for this event. CLE code: 245563
