Learn tools and techniques that can help you to negotiate credit for contributions made to developing and supporting the business. Also learn how to overcome one of the key unspoken biases identified in Fair Measure: Toward Effective Attorney Evaluations authored by Joan C. Williams, Co-Director of PAR, and Consuela A. Pinto, Director of Education for PAR, namely that: “…women who speak in a self-confident way, highlight past accomplishments, and attribute success to skill rather than luck, may find themselves criticized and viewed less positively than women who adopt a more modest approach to self-promotion ...”.

Yet women, unlike men, are typically evaluated on their past performance rather than their potential. Learning how to promote past performance is therefore key to progressing a woman’s legal career.
