Women & Leadership – during the pandemic and beyond

Wednesday, Feb. 10 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM)

Join Laura A. Rosenbury, Dean, University of Florida Levin College of Law in this interactive, virtual CLE that will analyze obstacles that women lawyers face when seeking leadership positions and propose strategies for overcoming those obstacles.  Since 1995, women have accounted for at least 40% of all law school graduates, and women now comprise 47% of all law firm associates.  But, according to the National Association of Women Lawyers 2020 Survey on Retention and Promotion of Women in Law Firms, women make up 31% of law firm non-equity partners, just 21% of equity partners, and an even lower percentage – 19% – of firm-wide managing partners.  Women of color, including Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American/American Indian, and mixed race women, represent only about 14% of female equity partners and about 3% of all equity partners.  Dean Rosenbury will discuss the underrepresentation and how the pandemic has exacerbated those practices and created new barriers.  She will propose structural and individual strategies for overcoming these obstacles.
