Office Life
Women’s Initiative
Historically, law firms have had a hard time retaining women in the senior ranks. At Goodwin, the Women’s Initiative is trying to understand why—and empower this generation of women to change things. The initiative centers around events: For example, it hosted a panel of female “rainmakers” who came to talk about networking effectively to bring in clients. More recently, former Goodwin Associates who’ve moved in house came back to share what it’s like to pursue the career path of an in-house lawyer.
