On April 15th, Lewis & Clark, Seattle University, and Gonzaga Law Schools are collaborating to host a virtual event that features Gender and Justice Commission Members and Affiliates for discussion on gender-related issues in the law. The event will focus on real-world legal advice about navigating gender and identity intersectionality in the workplace. WWL members are invited to volunteer for the event.
The event will take place in two parts. First, a main discussion room will briefly introduce the Commission and the topics at issue. Second, we will divide into breakout rooms where students will be able to have a conversation with volunteer attorneys and judges. Students can look forward to networking opportunities while simultaneously promoting discussion on modern gender-related issues in our profession. The breakout room topics will focus on (1) Identity and Intersectionality in the Workplace (e.g., Gender and Race, Gender and LGBTQ+, Becoming a better Ally), (2) Uncomfortable Moments: Navigating Offensive Conduct and Microaggressions in the Workplace and in Interviews, and (3) Negotiating a Salary and Other Difficult Conversations.
