Every year, Smith Anderson hosts a networking reception for women in-house lawyers in the Triangle. Our purpose is to provide a space for female in-house lawyers to exchange information, advice and referrals and advance their career development. Our networking receptions have become tremendously popular and have played a meaningful role in fostering dozens of new relationships between women in-house lawyers in our area.
This year’s event was particularly special as attendees participated in a wine tasting featuring wines created by female winemakers. The wines selected offered a glimpse into the lives of these women: their backstories, their struggles and their ultimate success in a male-dominated industry. The countries of origin of these wines – France, California, New Zealand and Argentina – further showcased the increasingly global reach of female leadership and entrepreneurism.
Smith Anderson values and promotes diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and in our community. Events like this one allow our firm to celebrate and honor our female colleagues who work in-house and to promote their personal and professional success. Please visit our Diversity page for more information about the ways we live our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Please contact us if you are a female in-house lawyer and would like to be added to our invitation list for the next event.
