Please join us for the Orloff Women’s Leadership in Law Forum on Friday, January 11th to learn how to skillfully navigate gender power dynamics in the workplace.

As Sheryl Sandberg points out in her groundbreaking book, Lean In, research has shown that success and likability are negatively correlated for women, creating a double bind for women as they move into leadership roles. Cynthia Zeltwanger, JD and Co-Founder of Women’s Leadership Lab, will help you better understand why power dynamics in the workplace are so tricky for women and what you can do about it! During the session you will be introduced to the Power Dynamics Model to help you assess your personal power orientation style and more skillfully navigate relationships with superiors, peers and direct reports.

Cynthia’s passion for helping women navigate power dynamics in the workplace comes from her 18 years of leadership experience working for Societe Generale. During that time, Cynthia served as CEO of the Americas and Global COO, and was responsible for the cultural and operational integration of over 3,000 employees in 18 different countries. For the past four years Cynthia served as the Executive Director of the Paulson Institute, the University of Chicago affiliated non-profit founded by former US Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Paulson.

The Orloff Women’s Leadership in Law Forum will be held on Friday, January 11th from 12:30 pm to 5pm in the Penthouse of the Logan Center for the Arts, 915 E 60th Street. Lunch will be served at 12:30 pm and the program will begin promptly at 1:15 pm. To optimize the workshop experience, attendance will be limited to fifty participants, so please be sure to register early!
