About the Book

You could fill a train from the East Coast to the West Coast with the research done about gender inequality and what makes women successful. It is important research. These are important books.

Learning to Lead: What Really Works for Women in Law, however, does not attempt to add another cargo load to that train. Instead, this book has three simple goals:
  • To synthesize and distill the research, anecdotal evidence, and key concepts on leadership techniques and success that help working women, in any field, develop in their careers.
  • To tailor these ideas and principles for women practicing law, regardless of practice area, and create practical actions that lawyers can implement in their lives and workplaces.
  • To recognize the uniqueness of what success and leadership look like for each individual woman practicing law and to put the learning into practice by hearing from women who are leading in legal fields, including the judiciary, and by transforming ourselves with a total leadership makeover.
One of the Commission on Women's highest priorities throughout the years has been to provide women lawyers with the information and tools they need to advance into leadership positions in all areas within the law. Learning to Lead provides a concise road map of the latest collective wisdom on leadership and applies those principles to women lawyers. It also features interviews with 11 women legal leaders who share their lessons learned and tips for success.

Read this book, take action, and chart your course to leadership and success.
