Lessons in Leadership. Paula Boggs exudes and inspires leadership wherever she goes. From public service in the US. Army, Department of Defense and White House, to private law firm practice and the top legal job at Starbucks, to writing, recording and leading her own band as an esteemed musician, Paula excels and makes an indelible impact in everything she does. During this fireside chat interview, Paula will delve into how she had the courage to be the first and how she sets the standard for excellence – partly, by overcoming failures along the way. With probing questions posed by author and workplace expert Debbie Epstein Henry, Paula will uncover how she channeled grief and fear and invited creativity into her life to garner both success and meaning. She’ll show us how diversity, equity and inclusion can be woven into the fabric of our every day to bring us more purpose and satisfaction. She’ll also leave us humming “music for the soul” with her “Seattle Brewed Soul Grass,” a magical fusion of folk, blue grass, jazz, rock and world music.

    For more than 20 years, I've run the DEH Speaker Series (formerly under the names Flex-Time Lawyers and Law & Reorder).  The DEH Speaker Series is a quarterly programming series where I interview and moderate conversations with New York Times best-selling authors, TED speakers and thought leaders.  The quarterly events draw up to 1,000 participants from companies, law firms and non-profits worldwide.  I've been fortunate to have more than 30 prominent law firms host these events over the years.  The program topics vary and generally fall into three categories:  careers/workplaces, women/diversity and law.  Here’s a 2-minute highlight reel of my interview of Valerie Jarrett to give you a sense of how the DEH Speaker Series works.

    We are excited to be expanding our DEH Speaker Series membership offerings to three types:

    • Access to the Next 4 Consecutive Events by Unlimited Online Webcast for 1 Year
    • Access to the Next 4 Consecutive Events by Unlimited Online Webcast for 1 Year PLUS  Access to All 16 Former Archived Events by Unlimited Online Access for 1 Year
    • Access to All 16 Former Archived Events by Unlimited Online Access for 1 Year

    Due to COVID-19, the DEH Speaker Series is currently being offered exclusively online and membership options do not include in-person participation.  When social distancing restrictions are removed, if it makes sense to return to in-person programming, we will resume in-person events at the same rate for existing members and continue to offer the events by webcast.  With the new exclusive online offerings, all members will be able to access the webcast events individually from any location.  Many organizations purchase corporate memberships to supplement their internal professional development, women’s initiatives and/or diversity programming.  With the future of travel, work-at-home parameters, conferences, meetings, and social gatherings still in limbo, access to meaningful programming and connection remains limited and the DEH Speaker Series can fill these gaps now more than ever.  To learn more about the new Archived Access that we’re offering and to access 16 of our former events, click here.

    Here’s a corporate invoice and an individual invoice that outlines the new offerings and payment terms.  Click here to purchase one of the membership offerings online.  You can also pay by check as outlined in the invoices.
