Gender Equality Committee: Taking the Next Step

By:

The fourth and final session of the Gender Equality Committee Training Series will focus on implementation of training initiatives to promote the advancement of women in the legal profession.

Presenters Julie Moore and Linda Johnson will summarize and discuss what we have learned from the first three training sessions, making this three-hour seminar an excellent opportunity for attorneys who were unable to attend any or all of the first three sessions.

The final session, scheduled for Jan. 10 at the NH Bar Center in Concord, will provide firms with a gender equality roadmap for the future.

The presenters will share the results of studies from neighboring states and the American Bar Association on implementation of gender initiatives and encourage discussion among attendees.
