New York, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
Women@Weil, the affinity group of women attorneys at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP is collaborating with Negotiating Women, Inc. to roll out the Just Add Women Meeting® Toolkit to its twenty offices worldwide.
The Toolkit Series includes a series of six meetings addressing a variety of “career critical” topics including Building a Strategic Network, Managing Complicated Conversations and Stepping Up to Leadership. The sessions will be led by women partners/counsel and senior staff, who have participated in a train-the-trainer session.
“We decided to pilot this series in response to women associates' desire for more skill-building and substantive workshop programs,” said Randi Singer, a litigation partner in the New York office. “The women involved in our network are diverse; this series offers something for everyone. While attorneys of all levels can benefit from the series, we are particularly focusing on women mid-to-senior associates.”
Added Meredith Moore, Director, Global Diversity, “Each session has a program toolkit with all the necessary materials for the partner/counsel presenters. The toolkit enables each session to be delivered multiple times by multiple presenters in different offices to address time zone and scheduling issues. The interactive nature of the program is an engaging way for our attorneys to truly gain practical skills from the courses.”
“The Just Add Women Meeting® Toolkit is the result of extensive research regarding the unique challenges women face and will help meet a critical ongoing need in our profession,” said Carol Frohlinger, a lawyer herself and co-founder of Negotiating Women, Inc. “The sessions help participants learn new ways to contribute their own and their firm’s success. This program is a tangible way for a firm to demonstrate its commitment to retain and promote talented women.”
