If law firms and law departments are serious about developing women leaders, then they’ll send them to this conference. The who’s who of health care lawyers are here and there are multiple opportunities for informal networking and mentoring conversations.

This conference is one of the few events I have attended that is focused on women helping women with real-life, practical tips on how to make a significant impact on your career. Many of the speakers are willing to share stories not just of success, but stories of adversity and how to turn those situations around into successful ones. I block my calendar early, so I can be sure to attend each year.
