On Wednesday, April 13, 2011 the Delaware Chapter of the Widener Women's Network held a networking luncheon in Wilmington, DE. Katherine Mayer ‘98 at the law firm of McCarter & English LLP and Donna Harris ’98 with Pinckney Harris & Weidinger LLC sponsored the event at the McCarter & English office. About 28 women gathered in one of the firm’s conference rooms to network and enjoy an informal lunch.
A panel of four women spoke on the topic of Work/Life Balance in the Practice of Law in Delaware. The panelists included Dana Harrington Connor
‘92, Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Delaware Civil Law Clinic
, Widener University School of Law, Delaware Campus; Adria B. Martinelli, Member, Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP; Christine S. Azar, Partner, Laboton Sucharow, LLP; and Kimberly A. Harrison ’96, Associate, Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin.
The informative and energetic remarks from the panelists encouraged several others in attendance to share their own stories and suggestions for dealing with Work/Life Balance.
These luncheons are a great way for our female alumni to network and bond. They offer an enjoyable and enlightening break in the day but don’t require a major time commitment. Look at the calendar of events for an opportunity to join us for the next event in your regional area.
