Dechert’s Global Women’s Initiative (GWI) empowers women lawyers to succeed by fostering an environment that provides opportunities for development, advancement and leadership within the firm. Members of the GWI meet regularly with firm leadership to identify and implement initiatives that promote opportunities for women lawyers to advance and take on leadership roles throughout the firm.
Among Dechert’s initiatives that focus on women lawyers are formal and informal mentoring, development training, internal and external networking, special interest events, and leadership training. The GWI launched the Sponsorship and Sustained Support Program for senior women associates to help navigate the path to partnership. Local GWI Chapters host welcome receptions for new women associates and business and legal community events, including networking events for International Women’s Day.
At Dechert, we empower women to succeed by fostering an environment that provides opportunities for their development, advancement and leadership within the firm.
