OBA Women Lawyers Forum & Canadian Corporate Counsel Association - Ontario Chapter PROGRAM
5:30 PM to 7:45 PM

In its ongoing Pathways to Power series, the Women Lawyers Forum (WLF) shines a light on the successful journeys of female lawyers into positions of power and influence. The WLF, in partnership with Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) - Ontario Chapter, is proud to present the next installment in the series focused on women general counsel.

Join us for a candid conversation about the personality dynamics, hard skills, and professional backgrounds that are required to advance in an in-house environment. Our accomplished faculty will feature women leaders in general counsel roles who have successfully ascended to in-house legal leadership from a variety of industries. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear our dynamic and diverse panel share their insights on how to thrive in, and navigate the challenges of an in-house environment, followed by the chance to speak directly to one of our panelists in a smaller group setting.
