An Interesting Apology . . .

Did you catch Monday’s apology from the dean of Harvard Business School, for the school’s sometimes offensive treatment of its women professors and students?   Apparently Harvard has been prompted to improve its ways in part due to an unflattering profile in the New York Times last year, recounting...



Change Is Good

Many of you may not know that I have been off the blogging scene for a few months because of my relocation this fall to Boulder, Colorado.  While I had intended to make blogging a regular habit during this transition, I found it very difficult to achieve that goal,...



Musings on Checklists

I always enjoy thumbing through the ABA Journal, and this month’s was no exception, especially since the cover headline was “Women in Charge,” and the issue contained the article “Do Women’s Initiatives Work?”  I have my own point of view on how law firm women’s initiatives are, or are...

Here’s to the Sheroes

It’s March 8th, so Happy International Women’s Day!  I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to this special day.  The United Nation’s theme this year is “A Promise is a Promise:  Time for action to end violence against women,” which is something everyone should be...



Stories of Focus, Resilience, and Determination

The long dark evenings of winter are when I most enjoy going to the movies or curling up on the couch in front of the fire with a good book.   I’m ordinarily an outdoors person, biased toward active pursuits, but when it’s cold and dark outside, and some of...



Advancing Women in Law Firms

Tuesday’s national teleconference with the ABA’s Woman Advocate Committee discussing the survey data on the retention and advancement of women in law firms was every bit as discouraging as I thought it would be.  NAWL’s 2012 Survey confirms what every annual NAWL survey since 2006 has shown – that...



GirlVentures Rocks

Know why it’s important for girls to experience adventure in the out-of-doors? Author, mother, and peakbagger extraordinaire Patricia Ellis Herr shared three reasons this morning during her keynote talk at the annual GirlVentures Empower! Breakfast in San Francisco. Thanks to the generosity of my good friends Judy and Bruce...



A Belated Happy Birthday, and Thank You, to Title IX!

I was away in Puerto Rico at the ABA Litigation Section’s Spring Leadership meeting when the 40th anniversary of Title IX occurred earlier this week on June 23.  Title IX is the landmark legislation that outlawed discrimination between men’s and women’s educational programs, and perhaps its most well-known benefit...



Thinking about sponsorship

I enjoyed Pat Gillette’s presentation this week at the Bar Association of San Francisco on “Staying on Track,” focusing on the tools that 4-8th year law firm associates (or comparable level in-house counsel) need to stay on track in their legal careers.  Pat used the analogy of pigeonholes to...
