Two weeks ago, I was in Washington, D.C. for the Women, Influence & Power in Law conference, put on by our sister publication, Corporate Counsel magazine and the ALM Global Newsroom. I’m pleased to say the information gleaned from the event was valuable and actionable. The conference also provided several opportunities for networking with women from various locations and points in their careers, from new entrants to more senior women at the pinnacle of the profession.

One theme throughout the conference was: “What advice would you give your younger self?” In my case, I’d tell myself to plan my career changes a little better. As a military spouse who moved 10 times in 23 years, I didn’t organize my job searches very well, and at the time, remote work for lawyers wasn’t much of an option. But I did make the most of the travel opportunities available wherever we moved, and I’d certainly do that again!
