Empowering Women in Law Firm Leadership
October 4-5, 2023 - University Club of Chicago

Based on the success of our two MPF Virtual Conferences for women firm leaders, we are dedicating this year’s MPF Fall Symposium to focus on empowering women in law firm leadership. 

Please join us for our first live MPF event designed especially for women law firm leaders!

Our first virtual conference for women leaders was held on June 17, 2021, and we partnered with Dr. Sharon Abrahams. The event was wildly successful as we attracted more than 200 participants. The feedback was phenomenal. They liked the fast-paced program, the current survey data, and the all-woman faculty. In 2022, we partnered with Jennifer Johnson of Calibrate and Sheila Murphy of Focus Forward for our second virtual program for women…with similar success. 

This year, we look forward to being “in-person,” and we are thrilled to be partnering with Elise Holtzman of The Lawyer's Edge and Debbie Foster of Affinity Consulting as Co-Chairs.

Our format features a blend of panel discussions, live audience polling, breakout sessions, and plenty of networking opportunities. Here are a few reasons you and your firm should participate.

  • Format and topics designed by women for women in the legal profession
  • All-star, all-woman faculty, including nationally recognized speakers and authors
  • Current data on the progress of women in the legal profession
  • Practical tips and guidance for women in leadership positions
  • Proven strategies to attract and empower women in your firm
  • Cutting-edge thought leadership – that you can leverage for yourself and your firm

This promises to be a great program!
