Diversity in Practice CLE: What Works for Women at Work

Sept. 17, 2015

Minneapolis, MN

Twin Cities Diversity in Practice is hosting a facilitated conversation on the best-selling book by Joan C. Williams and Rachel Dempsey entitled What Works for Women at Work. This will be a unique opportunity for both men and women to sit down and discuss what patterns of behavior exist in the legal workplace concerning gender and learn what each of us can do about them. The book What Works for Woman at Work provides a platform to have those important conversations but does not leave readers hanging! Authors Williams and Dempsey provide key recommendations on what works for women at work from the women who have been there and succeeded.

This TCDIP elimination of bias CLE will begin with a panel discussion with lawyers in our own Minnesota community--inlcuding Merchant & Gould attorney Roshni Patel--and then take the time to dissect the thoughts presented using What Works for Woman at Work as the basis for further discussion.

Esteemed Panelists:
Coré Cotton – Assistant General Counsel, Wells Fargo Law Department
