Hello Fourth Floories!

For a long time, there were no women in the room or at the table. Then there was room for one- or maybe two- but certainly not a whole community. 
 
So many incredible women throughout history didn’t let that stop them. They did what they could, even if they had to do it alone, and we benefitted. I think we can all agree our history is replete with examples of the unfailing innovation and grit of women in America, often acting as trailblazers, particularly in times of crisis and emergency. And thank goodness. So, imagine what we could do if we were acting in concert? If we had one voice, one goal? 

This is the moment for Communities and the powerful collective action they can foster – our rapid embrace of ‘tech-enabled’ communities post-COVID is an incredible bit of progress for women everywhere. It is an opportunity to get the whole community at the table, a way to break free from the scarcity mindset. 

On that note, we are ecstatic to announce:

UPCOMING PUBLIC EVENTS

Thursday, March 25 from 4:00 - 5:00 pm EST

Let's talk about what no one talks about...

Vulnerable career in house attorneys talk about personal situations of non-success at an organization. Sometimes a person needs an exit plan and sometimes she’s pointed to the door. Either way, transition can bring pain and fear. Even if you are peachy in your role, join us to hear stories of transition and learn about the tools and tactics to preserve a narrative, reframe success, and prepare for the next chapter.

Thank you for sponsoring Kaufman Law.
