Plugging the Leaky Pipeline:
Promoting Women’s Leadership in Our Legal Community
A series of town hall discussions
Part V: Leadership Styles for Women
The business world is increasingly rejecting the traditional, top-down approach to leadership in favor of a collaborative leadership style. Many applaud this shift as advantageous toward women, who are traditionally seen as more collaborative, inclusive, and team-oriented. But too strong of a collaborative approach - such as asking for permission, appearing indecisive, or failing to assert a strong point of view - can be seen as weakness. This panel will discuss the characteristics of collaborative leadership, its benefits and pitfalls, what it looks like in the legal world, and how it can successfully be employed by women seeking positions of power and leadership in the legal community.
Please join us and our distinguished panel for this fifth in the series of Plugging the Leaky Pipeline town hall discussions. Confirmed speakers include:
Justice Mary Fairhurst, Washington State Supreme Court;
Laura Neebling, Partner at Perkins Coie;
Bree Kame'enui-Ramirez, Litigation Attorney at Weyerhaeuser
Mary Jane Pioli, Executive Coach at MJ Pioli and Company
