Managing Multiple Roles at the Top

October 10, 2019

Description: Managing Multiple Roles at the Top. It’s lonely at the top. After reaching the coveted C-suite, General Counsel often find themselves without a confidant or ally. The redistribution of roles that led to the GC’s promotion may mean her sponsors and colleagues change. She also may struggle with how to continue to mentor the women rising through the ranks with so many women clamoring for her guidance and limited time. At this event, we will wrestle with the balance of the woman general counsel in managing her corporate reporting relationships while keeping her finger on the pulse of the daily goings on in her department, especially among the junior women she has cultivated along the way. Attendees will leave the discussion with wisdom of how to be an effective multifaceted in-house leader who brings value to the business, her team as well as herself.
