In an article for the 2019 GDLA Annual Meeting, Attorney Karen Karabinos recognizes that women have a more difficult time achieving partner at a law firm than men do. Karen discusses various tactics and initiatives firms should take to assist women in overcoming this issue.
“While making partner at a law firm is a difficult challenge for any associate, the 2018 survey confirms what many of us know is a reality: it’s harder for women associates to get there. The question thus remains how each law firm can help the women climb that mountain and become equity partners. There are many options to consider, but what is critical is that all equity partners get behind their firm’s initiatives and to ensure the goal of making more women partners is met.”
