Date & Time: Tuesday, April 17, 8:30-9:15am - Networking and Buffet Breakfast; 9:15 10:30am - Program
Program: What are your ambitions? Do you want to make partner, become GC or CEO? It may not surprise you to hear that having ambition is not enough. While traditionally viewed as a personality trait, the more modern view of ambition comprises traits and social skills that enable you to break through interpersonal challenges within the workplace. From varied perspectives, moderator and panel will discuss the roles of ambition and the “positive” side of playing office politics in successfully managing their careers and others they have mentored. They will also discuss such topics as why “politics” is a dirty word for some; whether the “rules” are different for women; and how law departments are different from law firms.
