50. Trailblazers, Leaders, and Community Builders: Season 1 Highlights
As more women enter the legal space, we are seeing a shift. Attorneys, and legal professionals, empowered to show up as themselves. Playing by their own rules. Lifting one another up. And fighting for justice - together.
Despite under-representation, the first season of LawHer has revealed that there is no shortage of courageous women, unafraid to take up space. We have had the pleasure of talking with women who are taking the legal by storm. They own their story, show up authentically, and are cutting their own paths while reaching back to pull others forward. Today, we look back at some of the most impactful conversations of season one.
Thank you to every woman who shared their story and helped us build this community. And a special shout out to Chris Dreyer, CEO of Rankings.io, for his unwavering support as an ally.
