Nossaman Partner Veronica Gray will be participating on the panel, “Current Landscape: The Silence Breakers, Pay Equity & Creating Change” at the Women in Law & Leadership Summit in Silicon Valley on Thursday, April 19, 2018.  The other panelists include Dana Steffens, Associate General Counsel, SanMar; Karen Kramer, General Counsel, Quora and Magan Ray, Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig LLP.

Time's 2017 person of the year was The Silence Breakers.  How can the legal community use this momentum to create more opportunities and diversity?  Key metrics such as pay equity and the ratio of women in leadership positions show that there is inequality both in-house and at law firms. 

Implicit and explicit sexism is real – what can be done to create change on an individual basis, in organizations and across the country?

This panel discussion will examine:

  • Silence Breakers and utilizing the country’s awareness.
  • The current pay equity landscape for female lawyers both in-house and at law firms.
  • How can the current momentum be used for grassroots change?
  • What does top down change look like?
