WBA Spring Career Series: Make Your Moves

The WBA Spring Career Series will feature women lawyers sharing how they have made moves in their careers. Whether it's moving to a new job or building a longer-term career view, the five sessions will feature been-there-done-that tips as well as networking with panelists and session attendees. Register for one or the whole series.

The third of the series is Defining your Success - Building Career Story

Figuring out your career path can be daunting. How do you know where do you want to be in five years, ten years or more? Sometimes it's not about having a career plan, but rather about building a career story around the decisions and circumstances that have shaped your career path. Hear from a panel of lawyers who have built vibrant, interesting careers and what they have learned about what you can - and cannot - plan for.
