Reports have found that minority female attorneys often face special challenges during their careers because of their gender and race or ethnicity. This program will have a distinguished panel of minority judges and litigators discuss how their gender and race or ethnicity have impacted their careers and how minority women can continue to make strides in the legal profession. The panel will also discuss how minority and female attorneys can further their careers, particularly during the current economic climate.
