The Meeting the Challenge Conference is NAWL's distinctive forum during which attendees learn from thought-leaders, share best practices, and forge the meaningful and lasting connections necessary to meet NAWL's One-Third by 2020 Challenge. Issued in March 2016, the 2020 Challenge urges the legal profession to increase the representation of women, particularly diverse women, in every branch of the legal profession. This conference will offer attendees skills to develop their own leadership potential as well as strategies for making systemic change. NAWL will also unveil the results of its 2018 Survey on the Promotion and Retention of Women in Law Firms, administered by Professor Destiny Peery of Northwestern University's Pritzker School of Law at the conference.
