Women lawyers and professionals across Canada have a unique opportunity to attend a truly inspirational conference that will bring together an international faculty of renowned and celebrated women leaders to inspire, embolden and teach invaluable leadership skills.

Change is coming to professional practice, and women need to be at the front of that change, driving it and directing it. This conference will give women lawyers and professionals the tools, skills and confidence to influence careers and workplaces in ways that will work better for clients, professions and ourselves.

Whether you want to be a leader of your firm or practice group, be successful in government or the corporate world, start your own firm, or simply find ways to thrive in practice on your own terms, this conference will help you create the future you desire.

Hear from influential women speakers like Supreme Court of Canada Justice Rosalie Abella and The Right Honourable Kim Campbell, Canada’s first female Justice Minister and Prime Minister, who will lead a conversation about succeeding and flourishing as women at the highest levels of professional life. Other inspirational discussions will include:

  • Leadership and practice styles that empower women
  • Women and our relationship with power
  • Grit and growth, and how they lead to success
  • Skills to navigate difficult conversations and increase productivity
  • Thriving in practice – how it goes beyond work-life balance
  • Corporate leadership skills

This interactive, transformative, inspiring and fun conference is relevant to all women lawyers and professionals, whether you are just starting out, mid-career looking for that next opportunity, or a seasoned professional wanting to continue to make a difference.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to network and build relationships with clients. Invite a client to come with you and share in this amazing experience – for a nominal cost, you can have two full days with your client and a lifetime of experiences to share.

Connect with women lawyers and professionals from across Canada and be the change you want to see in your world. Registration opens this spring.
