Women’s History Month: Secrets to Self Advocacy (3/7/24)

Includes a Live In-Person Event on 03-07-2024 at 8:30 AM (CST)

Secrets to Self-Advocacy: Negotiating Compensation and Prioritizing Balance to Achieve Career Success

This event is in person only and will take place at the Chicago Bar Association, 321 S. Plymouth Ct., Chicago, IL 60604.

Join us for the CBA’s annual Women’s History Month Summit which will focus on how women lawyers can advocate for themselves as they negotiate compensation, and as they set boundaries to prioritize well-being. The Summit will begin with a networking breakfast and will be followed by substantive programming on pay equity, transparency, and compensation, as well as gender-specific attrition and well-being trends. Interactive sessions throughout the morning will provide tangible strategies for negotiating compensation and for prioritizing balance and well-being. The programming will be punctuated with “wellness breaks” during which attendees can try yoga exercises and breathing techniques to implement in their daily lives. Attendees are encouraged to dress comfortably if they wish to participate in light yoga and breathing exercises.
