Attorney Daniela Abratt moderates a panel that explores balancing the scales of leadership for women in the legal profession.
The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) is hosting its Annual Meeting and Law Firm Expo in Los Angeles this week. Today’s agenda includes a session that features Daniela B. Abratt, attorney with Thomas & LoCicero. She will serve as Moderator for a program MTV The Real World: Male Allies Edition. The discussion will address fact and myth issues that women encounter in the workplace and especially on their quest to climb the leadership ladder.
The session will focus on topics of hiring and the candidate selection process, mentoring, giving/receiving assignments, fair pay and promotions. Attendees will hear real world experiences regarding observations of bias shown towards women in the workplace and solutions employed in the past from a male ally perspective. Success stories will be shared by women who had a male ally on their side.
Ms. Abratt will moderate discussion among the panel whose members include Bruce Jackson with Microsoft, Rick Hammond with Walmart, Richard Amador with Sanchez & Amador and Felicia Gardner with Bank of America.
