Please join us for a conversation with the authors of the “Practicing Law in the Pandemic and Moving Forward” report --our Chicago member firm founder Stephanie Scharf and her co-author, Roberta “Bobbi” Liebenberg.
Facilitated by Lisa Borsook, Chair of SCG Legal's Women in Law Taskforce, this webinar will provide participants with data-based best practices and a framework needed to ensure the success of all lawyers at our firms, with practical insights into what we need to do to set up our member firms for the best possible future. Among report findings, we will discuss:
New approaches to managing and overcoming challenges that have been heightened by the pandemic—which have disproportionately affected women lawyers and lawyers of color, and which will impact how well law firms and corporate legal departments move forward.
Strategies for supporting lawyers who feel overwhelmed by the pressures of their work and home lives with many experiencing “burnout” and considering leaving the legal profession.
Tactics on how to lead teams of lawyers who are stressed about workplace resources, recognition, and job security.
Discussion concerning the implementation of effective programs and policies around flex-time and part-time; wellness; better resources for working parents; and comprehensive plans for family leave and sick leave.
