There is no Rosetta stone that translates precisely what an attorney must do to become a partner. There is not a list of boxes to be checked. The assessment for partnership is more complex and subtle than that. Please join us to hear from several openly LGBT law firm partners to learn about their journeys along the path to partnership. These partners will address when they first considered partnership a goal, how they started moving in the direction of partnership, how they found mentors and sponsors and what kept them at their firms when other opportunities knocked. They will also cover some of the complexities of intersectionality and how to leverage your LGBT identity and work as an asset.
