WLC 2017 features women speakers who will provide insights on a range of topics, including:

Competence-Focused Management for Women Lawyers
This session focuses on how non-verbal communication affects perceptions of competence and leadership. Learn easily implemented strategies to power up your dealings with clients, colleagues, and superiors.

Crossroads: Recalibrate for Professional Advancement
Each of us faces crossroads in our lives. Many women with demanding careers believe that they “can’t have it all”. Understand how to marshal resources, seek help and advice, and learn from the experiences of others, to come to terms with difficult decisions we need to make when it comes to balancing career and personal aspirations.

Striking Out on Your Own: Challenges and Lessons
The AWL Baseline Study (2014) showed that many women lawyers strike out on their own to have more flexibility and control over their careers. Many more women leave legal practice to pursue completely different careers. Understand the challenges of the different career paths. Learn what you need to know to make it on your own.

Finding Your Niche: Female Perspectives
Are you happy with the practice you have, or do you think there is more for you out there? Do you wonder how people who have made their name in “niche” areas of law succeeded? Is there an area of law that you would like to move into but don’t know where to start? Find out how, here.

Brand or Die
Technology has not just changed how we communicate and work; it impacts how women are perceived and how women influence others. This session is about understanding how to make technology work for women.

The Power of My Brain, Not the Length of My Skirt
This session summarises the issues, and the direction women lawyers can take to move forward in the legal profession. Have we become more empowered, and what obstacles do we still have to overcome?

Understand the challenges and rewards of legal practice and more, from women who have insight on how to make it work! Learn how to win and retain clients, get management tips, and find out how to make wise career choices.

Learn all this and so much more, at the Women Lawyers Conference 2017.
