Goldberg Segalla’s Caroline J. Berdzik will present at the Women in Law Summit Series Driving Diversity in Law & Leadership virtual conference on Wednesday, December 2.
The summit will offer compelling and interactive content exploring the obstacles, risks, and rewards on the path to a fulfilling and productive career for women and minority leaders.
Caroline is a panelist on a session devoted to the #MeToo movement, centering on inclusion strategies and what law firms and corporations can do to help. The panel, “#MeToo – Moving Beyond the Hashtag and Enlisting Men to Become Ambassadors for Change,” will focus on how to identity male allies, develop engagement strategies, establish how to self-advocate to get buy-in from others, and share tips and success stories from the panelists.
Caroline—a partner in Goldberg Segalla’s Princeton office, chair of the firm’s Employment and Labor practice, a member of the Facilitation Committee, and co-chair of the Women’s Initiative—will draw on her experience both championing inclusion at Goldberg Segalla and advising her corporate clients through legal and business issues related to diversity and employee engagement.
