Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be surrounded by some of the biggest boss-women in the country? Well, then you should attend Women En Mass. This annual conference, now in its sixth year, brings together the country’s brightest female mass tort attorneys, and it is nothing short of inspiring.
Women En Mass highlights issues that affect women from the boardroom to the courtroom and in everyday life. Building on the success it has established over the past five years, the organization invites the country’s top female attorneys and civil justice stakeholders back to Aspen, CO from September 23 to 25, 2018. This conference is not your father’s stodgy conference – it’s an opportunity to learn, network, explore, and work toward solutions that make a positive impact on women everywhere.
Women En Mass is hosted by the organization’s founder, Aimee Wagstaff of the Denver-based law firm Andrus Wagstaff. This year, speakers include powerhouses such as Lori Andrus (Partner at Andrus Anderson LLP), Linda Lipsen (CEO of American Association for Justice), Leslie Brueckner (Senior Attorney at Public Justice), and many others.
Some of the presentation topics include:
- How Washington is impacting the practice of law
- Appellate advocacy
- Thinking globally and acting locally to grow your business
- Building a brand
- Hiring and retaining diverse attorneys
As the website notes, “The world may have changed a great deal for women in America over the last 100 years, but there’s still work to be done.” Milestone Consulting is a proud Corporate Pledge Sponsor of Women En Mass.
