Women’s Power Summit on Law and Leadership™

Location: Austin, Texas

On April 26-28, 2017, the Center for Women in Law will convene leaders for its fifth Women’s Power Summit on Law and Leadership™. Described as “a veritable Who’s Who of influential women in the legal profession,” the Women’s Power Summit™ is one of the most significant gatherings of women lawyers in the country. Since the first Women’s Power Summit in 2009, the Center for Women in Law has convened approximately 500 leaders at four Women’s Power Summits (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015) with many of the leaders attending multiple Summits.

Speakers and attendees include chief legal officers and general counsel, law firm managing partners, judges, government officials, elected officials, law school deans, bar presidents, and other preeminent lawyers, as well as academics and business leaders who are positioned to make significant and lasting change in the legal profession.

The invitation-only event assembles women at the pinnacle of their careers – powerful women who have the ability to lead and achieve results within their organizations. It provides a rare opportunity for women leaders to engage in innovative programming and to network with their female peers, while also encouraging those leaders to claim the mantle of responsibility to make a positive difference for all women.

The theme of the 2017 Women’s Power Summit™ is Power Plays that Matter. Sandra Phillips Rogers, Group Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel, Toyota Motor North America, and Arleas Upton Kea, Director of Administration, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, are the co-chairs.
