Plenary Breakfast Session


Lemonade 101: Making the Most of Bias

Angelina Tsu

Implicit bias is the bias in judgment or behavior that results from subtle cognitive processes, and, like it or not, it is a reality in the workforce.  Ms. Tsu's presentation will discuss the issue implicit bias: what it is, how it affects both men and women, and most importantly, what we can do about it.  Is it possible for us to outsmart biology and use implicit bias to our advantage?


 Power Up, Sisters

Lisa Watts Baskin

Women serve a unique and invaluable role in their communities, and can use their talents to participate more fully in public life and civic leadership. This session will focus on empowering women to embrace these roles by getting involved, whether that means running for political office, participating in local boards and commissions, or simply engaging more fully in the political system.

Make Rain While the Sun Shines: Leveraging the Power of Networks in Your Career

Sara Dansie Jones

For those who may not currently be practicing law, this presentation will focus on “crafting” a career from a legal foundation and allowing that career to grow and thrive. Ms. Jones has coached dozens of lawyers and executives over the years on growing their business and career transitions.


Women Mentoring Women

Barbara Melendez

This session will discuss the role of a mentor, the importance of women supporting and empowering one another, and practical ways that seasoned practitioners can prepare themselves, develop leadership traits, and build long-lasting relationships with those they mentor.

In Defense of Our First Freedom

Gayla Sorenson

Religious freedom is our first freedom and one that is being attacked on many fronts.  This presentation will provide a high-level look at some of the critical, interesting issues that currently exist in this area of law, and discuss ways to get personally involved in defending this key right.


Plenary Lunch

The Joyful Lawyer

Karen Clemes

Lawyers are notorious for being unhappy and stressed out.  Benjamin Franklin said, “The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.”  This session will provide insights on how to take charge of “catching” your own happiness, including by being mindful of your level of happiness, learning to say no better, discovering what activities make you feel the most joyful, and even changing jobs if needed.

Cost: $40, includes 4 CLE credits, breakfast, and lunch ($10 for students)

the CLE credits and no meals or if you have any questions)
