Raising the Bar 2015
Asian Women Partners in Major Firms
For the fifth year, AWIB highlighted Asian women legal professionals during our annual Raising the Bar legal forum. This year, we engaged in a meaningful dialogue and learned from the experiences of a notable panel of Asian women partners in major law firms in the United States. What were their paths to success and advancement? Did they follow the "unwritten rules," "stick to the schedule," and "be perfect?"
Our panel discussion was led by Alice Young, the first Asian woman partner in a major law firm in New York. She has a four (4) decade understanding of the partnership track and is a respected member of the legal and business community. Our four panelists are partners in well-known law firms and each shared a unique story to their decision to pursue a career in law and their paths to achieving leadership roles in their respective firms.
