Melinda S. Gentile, Partner and Diversity and Inclusion Chair at Peckar and Abramson, P.C. will co-moderate a panel at the Groundbreaking Women in Construction conference (GWIC) during the Advancing Women in Construction Law breakout session. Alexandra Busch, Senior Associate at Peckar & Abramson, will co-moderate the panel to be held in the Grand Ballroom and Pacific Concourse from 1:45 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. PST.
Businesses and law firms have been searching for the Rosetta Stone that unlocks the secret to advancing women lawyers, but only one conclusion is clear – there is none. Experts suggest a focus on organization culture and its impact on careers. This panel of women attorneys whose careers have taken differing paths will offer insights on the importance of “culture.”
GWIC 2019 will be held at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, 5 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA 94111.
