In recent years, women have been making great strides in gender equality. Despite such progress, men still well outnumber women in the room, and women in the legal profession continue to face many obstacles throughout their career. This session will be directed at identifying and dealing with gender issues in a FINRA arbitration practice from prospecting to hearing, as well as in mediation and relations with opposing counsel and peers. This session is not just for women. We invite everyone to join the panel as they identify the issues so we can all be part of the solution.
