Even with the increased attention to diversity in the legal profession, there has been little appreciable impact on metrics that measure women's advancement. For example, women comprise only approximately 18 percent of law firm partners, and the number of equity partners is even smaller.

The business case for creating a workplace where women can succeed is real and compelling, and more stakeholders are using their leverage to develop specific and practical action items to drive change.

Developing an inclusive workplace where everyone can succeed requires concentrated efforts from both the institution and the individual. Only with the focused commitment and attention of both will there be significant progress.

Success Strategies for Women Lawyers, authored by well-known attorney and consultant Lauren Stiller Rikleen , is an in-depth look at the necessary steps needed to address the ongoing challenge of advancing women in the legal profession.

Each chapter of this new report provides tailored insight into the strategies that can help women achieve parity in the profession. These include:

  • Networking and Relationship-Building
  • Successful Business Generation
  • Self-Advocacy and Self-Promotion
  • Managing and Maintaining Work-Life Balance
  • Creating a Better Workplace for the Next Generation
  • Reflections on a Changing Profession

Each of these chapters is supported by women who provide insight, opinion, and practical tips on how they have tackled these keys issues to achieve considerable success in their careers.
