Gordon & Rees Sponsors 2018 Ladder Down San Francisco Program; Women Attorneys Encouraged to Enroll Today

Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani will be a Diamond Level sponsor of the prestigious 2018 Ladder Down™ year-long program in San Francisco which provides direct training and career development to women attorneys. After a highly successful inaugural year, the program will begin again on January 25, 2018 and enrollment is currently underway. Bay Area law firms are encouraged to enroll their female attorneys before the enrollment closes on January 11, 2018.

Gordon & Rees partner Linda Moroney is a program co-chair of the San Francisco Ladder Down program along with Bay Area attorneys Michele Ballard Miller and Joyce Wang. In addition to San Francisco, Ladder Down is also available in Phoenix and Seattle. Through a combination of the program's faculty, sponsors, and participants, the Ladder Down programs empower women lawyers in three critical areas: leadership, business development, and mentoring

The Ladder Down program is a Federation of Defense Corporate Counsel (FDCC) program. It is unique in both structure and content and includes monthly large group sessions, as well as periodic small group discussions in which the participants meet with small accountability groups to report on their progress and set new goals. The sessions are taught by esteemed faculty and rounded out with local panel discussions on compelling topics such as "Wisdom From the Bench," "A Candid Conversation with Corporate Decision-makers," and "What Firms Really Think."
