Women in Law Roundtable Discussion 2022

The editorial staff of The Legal has always been aware that the hiring and retention of female attorneys is an ongoing issue in the legal community. In an effort to discuss some of the specific problems facing female attorneys and present potential solutions to those problems, we invited 11 practitioners to talk about how to bolster the role of women in the law. After two-and-a-half years into the COVID-19 global pandemic, and our use of Zoom for meetings being so common, we opted to once again hold the discussion via a videoconference.

This year, the panelists tackled how to combat the post-COVID era’s Great Resignation, the move from solely working from home to hybrid schedules and how that will affect women attorneys going forward, and, a familiar topic, the importance of mentors in young women’s legal careers. Finally, the panel discussed what a post-COVID workplace will look like in the coming years.
