“After spending a couple days with industry thought-leaders and talented women leaders from law firms around the country at the Women Leaders Forum, we sensed a culture shift, in part because of the current #MeToo movement. We talked a great deal about leadership—what you need to be good at it, the paths to it, the behaviors, the interactions, the strategies and tactics, etc. We discussed the percentages of women and diverse lawyers in leadership roles, as well as implicit bias and what is holding people and organizations back from having balanced seats at the table.
