Plugging the Leaky Pipeline

Carving Your Own Path to Success

June 17, 2015

Register Now!

Successful but skeptical, we face daily challenges in the profession, the workplace and our personal lives that lead us to question our ability to succeed in the paths we pursue.  We ask ourselves, “am I making the right decision for me, my career, and my personal life?”  We wonder whether we should give up the prospect of partnership in exchange for the perceived lifestyle change of serving as in-house counsel, opening our own firm, or leaving the profession altogether.  We ask ourselves, “what sacrifices will I have to make to be successful?”  Most, if not all, of us have pursued our careers with these heavy questions in mind.  Please join us and our distinguished panel for our first in this year’s series of Plugging the Leaky Pipeline town hall discussions.  Listen to our panelists as they discuss openly and answer your questions candidly about how they carved their own path to success, the tough decisions they made along the way about their career and/or family to make it work, and the challenges they faced or perhaps continue to face as they advance in their careers.


Confirmed speakers include:

•Maja Larson

General Counsel of the Allen Institute for Brain Science

•Ellen Dial

Retired Partner at Perkins Coie

•Narda Pierce

Washington Supreme Court Commissioner; Former Washington Solicitor General


Thanks for Making our 2014 Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony a Huge Success!


WWL’s sold-out Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony occurred October 10, 2014 at the Foundry by Herban Feast in Seattle.  This year’s event focused on “Expanding Our Reach,” and featured a keynote address by Chief Judge Marsha J. Pechman of the Western District of Washington and Chief Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson of the Eastern District of Washington.

Please take a look at the photos of this wonderful event.  Thank you to Martina Machackova Photography & Design for the beautiful photos.
