Women, Influence & Power In Law – A Corporate Counsel Event

Women, Influence & Power in Law (WIPL) – A Corporate Counsel Event comes to Washington, D.C. on October 4th, 2018. The 2-day event held at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel offers the opportunity to enjoy an unprecedented exchange with women serving as in-house and outside counsel. This event is the original global forum facilitating a women-to-women exchange on legal and leadership issues. CLE and Ethics credits are available for those who attend the forum.


The Annual Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference


WIPL is a unique event created with the help of a dedicated advisory board comprised of unheralded yet high-ranking women serving as General Counsel or direct reports to General Counsel. The forum’s founders come from around the world, and these attorneys have achieved high levels of experience and success leading practice areas and legal departments.


WIPL Isn’t Your Typical Women’s Forum


Women, Influence & Power in Law isn’t a forum to talk about so-called “women’s issues.” It’s a meeting of in-house and outside counsel women attorneys who come together to discuss leadership-related topics. They bring their personal experiences to the event as well as their unique perspectives, which they share in the areas of:


●      Corporate Leadership

●      Cybersecurity and Data Privacy

●      Labor and Employment

●      Intellectual Property

●      Global Risk Management

●      Executive Leadership Development

●      Litigation

●      Business Strategy
