New York, New York (PRWEB) May 24, 2017
Law Business Media, publishers of Metropolitan Corporate Counsel, In-House Ops and In-House Tech, are pleased to announce our recent special section "Women in Business & Law." The section features seven articles by or about women in business or law. As several of the women themselves emphasized, they are all in business (though they are not all lawyers), and they spoke about some of the special challenges this entails. To underscore the point, a few charts have been incorporated into this section that can serve as scorecards to track the progress women have made in recent years – and the distance that remains.
In conjunction with this section, Law Business Media is pleased to announce a new webinar series dedicated to Women in Business & Law. Our first event, BE THE CEO OF YOUR OWN CAREER, will be held on June 15, 2017 at 1:30pm ET. This event will be moderated by Megan Belcher, a partner with Husch Blackwell LLP who will be joined by Chelsea Grayson, Former CEO of American Apparel and Miriam Frank, VP & Leader of Legal Talent at Major Lindsey and Africa.
