    The CWBA is proud to facilitate an annual forum for working moms. This year's forum will offer something special, with a surprising comedic twist!   

    The Moms Luncheon will be kicked off by two local talents offering us an amusing sampling of their hit comedy show "Broadsided."  Taryn Atlas and Debbie Scheer will amaze and delight with comedy aimed at the highs and lows of working moms!  And come prepared to answer these 3 questions to win life-altering prizes:

    1. What is the most embarrassing thing your child has ever done?
    2. What is the most horrifying thing you have done that (intentionally or unintentionally) embarrassed your child?
    3. Describe in detail the worst “mom outfit” you ever wore to work?
    We'll also offer an open forum to talk about issues and brainstorm ideas together. Great opportunity to network and connect with other moms!

    As individuals progress along their careers, the impact of confidence, as opposed to competence, can play a critical role in determining who gets opportunities.  In The Confidence Code, Katty Kay and Claire Shipman discuss the gender dynamics relating to this issue, noting that women will often be reluctant to push for opportunities unless they believe themselves to be 100% qualified, whereas men will more readily embrace them even with fewer qualifications to prepare them for the position.  In a similar observation, Susan Cain (author of Quiet and a well-reviewed TED Talk) notes that introverts may also be less willing to present themselves as forcefully as their extrovert counterparts.  For employers, at both law firms and in house law departments, it is critical to ensure that opportunities are afforded based on the ability to perform effectively, not on individuals’ willingness to put themselves out there more aggressively.  

    Distinguished Panelists: 

    • Fiona Arnold, Executive Director, Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade
    • Rasmani Bhattacharya, General Counsel, Gates Corporation
    • Jessica Brown, Partner, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP & CWBA President 
    • Daphne O’Connor, Partner, Arnold & Porter, LLP

    At this CLE co-sponsored by the Colorado Women's Bar Association and the University of Colorado Law School, we will discuss this challenge, evaluating how it manifests itself at different stages of a lawyer's career.
