Finding New Ways for Women to Lead in Law JOHANNESBURG 2017
WOLELA’s annual conference provides a space in which women lawyers can be inspired, uplifted, supported and challenged to reach their full potential personally and professionally. It convenes preeminent women in law including law firm partners and associates, in-house counsel, judges, government officials, law school professors, and law students. We choose a stellar line up of panelists from different parts of the legal system. We have abolished PowerPoint presentation in favour of dialogue. We bring in facilitators to negotiate courageous conversations that involve the entire room. This is a platform on which women lawyers can work together to effect much needed changes in their teams, their organizations and in the legal system.
