Sarah Levine, a partner in our Securities Litigation & SEC Enforcement Practice, will participate in a panel discussion on "Best Leadership Practices for Women Lawyers" during PLI's "Women Lawyers in Leadership 2023" event on September 13.

Despite equal numbers of women entering the legal profession, women lawyers still face institutional hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential as leaders within their chosen roles.

PLI's informative conversation will feature lawyers who have successfully broken through the glass ceiling. This program will benefit women lawyers who are looking to take their career to the next level and gain a competitive edge.
