WidenerWomensNetworkDEOn 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.
