Title of Program: What They Want: A Multi-generational View of Legal Career and Success
Description of Program: While the legal profession and law firms are changing in some ways too slowly and in other ways too fast, we may need to challenge our assumptions about what is perceived as individual career success. Moderated by workplace inter-generational expert and long-time law firm business development consultant/coach Phyllis Weiss Haserot, you will get a cross-generational view from a panel of Boomer, Gen X and Gen Y/Millennial practicing and aspiring women lawyers as well as from a former corporate lawyer, now legal recruiter. They will provide insights on: Do the different generations have a different vision of a successful career? Do they anticipate a series of careers? What has to change in firms to capitalize on the assets each generation brings and retain desirable talent? Are the definitions of success the same for women and men within each generation? What intergenerational challenges must law firms solve in order to sustain their productivity, reputation and attraction to all generations?
