Sharing Success Strategies - Life and Law Series
Women Lawyers Forum | 12:30 pm

In November 2013, a group of successful women in the legal profession gathered at the OBA in Toronto to relay their stories at Sharing Success Strategies. Now the OBA is bringing this critical program to a city near you with locations in Ottawa and Windsor this Spring. Hear from our unparalleled faculty of local women speakers as they share with you their key strategies and learned lessons on achieving success in the legal profession and how they seemingly manage to “have it all”. Gain insightful advice on career management and business development topics, and how to thrive while balancing both life and law.

Join us for a networking lunch before the program where you will have the chance to meet and engage in more in-depth conversation with some of our inspirational speakers. If you are a woman trying to achieve your goals in law and life, this is an opportunity you can't afford to miss!
