Wiggin and Dana Sponsors The Women, Diversity and Change Summit in NYC
Wiggin and Dana sponsored The Women, Diversity and Change Summit that was held in New York City on May 8, 2019. Wiggin and Dana Partner, Sapna Palla spoke at the event. Sapna’s panel titled “Lessons Learned from Female & Minority Leaders, Litigators and Deal-Makers” explored pathways to leadership for women litigators and transaction counsel. It focused on winning strategies that work, lessons learned along the way and what women can do to succeed in their chosen paths. Several other Wiggin and Dana attorneys also attended this event.
The Women, Diversity and Change Summit explores how to create lasting change for women and minorities in the legal profession with topics such as: advocating for yourself and others, what are the best ways to deal with discrimination and unconscious bias, what can be done to increase diversity in leadership, techniques, and strategies to enhance your career and sponsorship of other women and minorities.
