Professional Development Forum

The WA Initiative for Diversity and the Puget Sound Association of Legal Administrators are excited to host a "Professional Development Forum" to discuss how to be successful as a diverse attorney in the prevailing law firm culture.

The purpose of this forum is to offer insight into law firm drivers and type of skills desired by law firm employers. By offering these insights, we hope to raise awareness of law firm drivers, how best to navigate the law firm system to advocate for better growth opportunities and how to assist in making law firm culture to be inclusive of all. 

The Forum will cover:
- Law firm economics
- Universal skills to be successful in the legal profession
- CLOSED DOOR Affinity Group Breakout Session
