Event Description: The SCCBA Women Lawyers' Section is proud to present our Fifth Annual SCCBA Women’s Lawyer Program. This year we are excited to kick off the event with a panel discussion on the incredible groundswell of civic engagement generated by the result of the 2016 Presidential Election. From Pantsuit Nation and the Indivisible Guide, to the Women’s March and everything in between, we will explore what is happening, why, and how to get involved. Our expert panelists have years of experience in civic engagement and can enlighten us all on how to get engaged in issues that matter to all of us without burning out and feeling discouraged. Panelists Magan Ray, Esq., Partner of Greenberg Traurig and Chair of the ACLU of Northern California, Leah Castello, Partner of Burke Williams Sorenson and leader of L4GG in Northern California, a Facebook group for lawyers interested in activism, and Maimuna Sayed, Executive Director of Emerge California, which trains our future leaders to run for political office, will provide a dynamic discussion. As always, our program will also include a distinguished group of women lawyers leading small, round table discussion groups about issues facing female attorneys in the 21st Century: work-life balance, sexual harassment, marketing, and reinvention. We have Hon. Beth McGowen and Susan Krumplitsch to lead our ever popular work life balance group, and Anne Martin, our resident lawyer-turned-reinvention strategist, along with distinguished lawyers Kathleen Sherman and Neda Mansoorian, who will lead the group about the importance of courage and risk taking in today’s ever changing legal environment. We could not ask for better lawyers to teach us about marketing: Pat Gillette, former rainmaker at Orrick and now mediator at JAMS is returning to our program; and Cassie Springer Ayeni, a sole practitioner/ERISA specialist who will explain how women lawyers can market themselves in today’s dizzying social media environment. And for our group on the persistent scourge of sexual misconduct in our schools, universities and colleges, we have Crystal Riggins, former attorney representing students at Stanford University, Michelle McGrath, a certified Title IX investigator, and local counsel Lori Costanzo and Lauren Cerri, who represent sexual assault, harassment and molestation victims.
