WEBCAST: Inspiring Women with Guest Anne-Marie Slaughter
April 24, 2013
The debate about women having it all reached a fever pitch last year, spurred by Princeton Professor Anne-Marie Slaughter's Atlantic article about her experience working at the State Department. With the future of the legal profession uncertain and law students graduating with fewer jobs to fill, the messaging to our women law students and lawyers about how, whether, when and if you can have it all is more important than ever. At this program, we are honored to host Anne-Marie Slaughter in a one-on-one interview. We will delve into the challenges that arise when women pursue power in the workplace and have family responsibilities at home or other significant commitments outside the office. Attendees will leave the program armed with individual action steps they can take, as well as steps for their employers, that enable women to aspire and thrive - inside the office and out.
