Inspiring Women: Lessons in Leadership and Legacy – Part 3 (03/22/22)

At the start of the 2021-2022 bar year, The Chicago Bar Association launched the D.I.C.E. Committee which aims to promote diversity, inclusivity, equity, and engagement within the Association. One of the major initiatives of the D.I.C.E Committee has been to capture the storied history of Chicago’s most accomplished women lawyers through a series of curated interviews. These videos feature a diverse group of women lawyers and judges who share their personal stories, their perspectives on how to thrive within the profession, their advice for women entering the profession and their predictions for the future. Please join us in celebrating Women’s History Month with The Chicago Bar Association by viewing this pre-recorded compilation of moments from our Women’s Interview Archive. Please note that the pre-recorded video will become available on March 22, 2022; there is no live event taking place on that date.
