"Kristen is a down-to-earth presenter that builds a bridge with her audience rather than creates a divide, which happens with a fair amount of speakers. She presents the truth in a very relatable, personable and authentic way. Her passion for gender equity is communicated through her love of bringing awareness!"

strategies to move the needle on gender equity in law
Gender equity in private practice reduces costs and increases revenue by improving succession planning, client engagement, innovation and productivity. However, many firms struggle to move the needle, despite implementing initiatives including affinity groups, flexible working arrangements, and unconscious bias training.
Join Dr. Kristen Liesch, PhD, to find out why strategies that succeed in other industries don't have the same impact in law. Dr. Liesch will cover a dozen research-based "nudges" that can bring your firm closer to the gender equity it needs to thrive in today's evolving legal context.
