The American Lawyer

For women whose tenure in the legal profession is measured in decades, news of annual surveys reporting equity partner and compensation statistics feel like the movie “Groundhog Day,” but without the happy ending.

FEATURED VIDEO

"Lauren was the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire Bar Association Gender Equality Committee Breakfast and spoke on the topic of on-going gender equality issues in the legal profession. Lauren’s presentation was particularly effective because she cited to recently conducted research among female attorneys to support the fact that female attorneys continue to experience sexual harassment, retaliation and bullying in law firms. Her examples provided the opportunity to discuss the role of workplace bias and to provide practical steps for individuals to take to be aware of and confront their biases. While this topic and the data continues to be disheartening for the legal profession, Lauren has an amazing ability to engage the audience, inject humor, and instill hope by empowering the listeners to make a difference. I highly recommend Lauren for speaking engagements on this and other topics relating to workplace culture and employee engagement, as her diligent research and analysis will help all businesses address inequality and create a more respectful, diverse, and inclusive environment."
