Lisa Gilford will be a featured panelist during the session, "How Women Lawyers Shape the Legal Profession ("Wine and Wisdom
")", at this conference hosted by the National Association of Women Lawyers
. This session will provide an inspirational and instructional discussion among women lawyers who have reached the pinnacles of success. In an age where more than 50% of all law school graduates are women, only an estimated 17% of those women make it into upper management or high ranking positions within their firms or companies. The panelists will discuss the biases and obstacles they encountered along the way and what means they employed to overcome those biases and remain on an upward path.
