Managing your Career: the XX Advantage series

Our Managing your Career: the XX Advantage series began 2010 as a way of connecting senior female lawyers, teaching them to network and helping them to help each other to advance their careers. Over the years it has developed into a dynamic network of senior law firm and in-house lawyers and management professionals who are committed to increasing gender balance in the profession.

Our events include panel discussions on issues concerning the advancement of women, diversity/inclusion more broadly, inspirational talks, and practical skills training workshops.

The XX events attract a group of 60-120 senior professionals in and around the legal profession, mostly law firm partners, general counsels and senior in house counsel.   We encourage female attendees to bring a male colleague or friend.
