The Rise of the Woman Leader: An event focused on the professional advancement of women
Lerners LLP announces their next event in an annual speakers’ series centered on educating, inspiring and empowering professional women to grow, thrive and develop opportunities to help them reach their full potential. On November 23, 2017, the Lerners Women’s Symposium will feature Marlene McGrath, Senior Vice President, Human Resources at 3M in an intimate one-on-one talk with Janet Stewart, Partner and former Managing Partner for over 30 years at Lerners LLP. The conversation will focus on mentoring, diversity and inclusion, career change and advancement for women in the workplace.
“Lerners LLP is very proud to continue this signature speaker series as part of our efforts to build leadership among women across London and surrounding areas through inspirational stories that encourage leadership and success,” notes Yola S. Ventresca, Partner at Lerners LLP. “Having Marlene McGrath as our guest is a huge accolade, given her experience and the role she’s played in championing culture change.”
Marlene has achieved great success in her career and was recently named by the National Association for Female Executives as Global Women’s Envoy. She has paved the way for thousands of other women to take on leadership roles through initiatives like 3M’s global Women’s Leadership Forum. “Marlene’s efforts have helped transform the culture of 3M particularly in the area of women in leadership. She has mentored and supported individuals as well as groups of women, and has been a strong advocate for processes and systems that support women as well as men. We’re hopeful that her spirit of leadership will stimulate our business community to improve the advancement of women.” notes Alysia Christiaen, Partner, Lerners LLP.
Lerners LLP is eager to continue this speaker’s series. For over 85 years, Lerners LLP has been supporting the legal needs of Ontarians – working with individuals, families, businesses and institutions to deliver the best representation possible.
