Business Development Tools and Strategies For Women of Color

Monday, December 10, 2012
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

If you are an attorney looking to stay at the forefront of business development in today's global legal market, this conversation should not be missed.

Please join us for frank discussions and real world advice from a distinguished panel of attorneys who "get it". They will identify obstacles to successful business development and provide the tools and strategies needed to overcome them. Although this program is designed to discuss these issues as they relate to women of color attorneys, ALL ARE WELCOME!


In today's fiercely competitive legal environment, female attorneys of color face unique challenges in generating new business and cultivating and expanding existing client relationships. Presented by the Committee on Women in the Profession and the Committee on Minorities in the Profession, in conjunction with the Association of Black Women Attorneys, the Metropolitan Black Bar Association and the Asian American Bar Association of New York, a panel of experienced business producers and in-house counsel will share best practices in this interactive discussion.

At our event, you will be able to seize the opportunity to address your pressing business development questions to panelists with a proven track record.

We ask you to arrive at 6:00 p.m. for a 6:30 p.m. panel discussion. There will be time immediately following the panel to network!
