Women’s Leadership and Development Committee
The Women’s Leadership and Development (WLD) Committee is an important component of Diversity & Inclusion at Bennett Thrasher. Recognizing that women face unique challenges in today’s professional environment, the committee, led by women, was formed to provide tools and resources to help women accelerate their career and raise awareness by sharing information, best practices and experiences. The WLD Committee provides resources and programming for associates at all levels, with a goal to recruit, develop and retain talented women for future leadership positions within Bennett Thrasher.
The WLD Committee’s mission is “To provide opportunities for emerging women leaders to develop core values, attitudes and competencies that are the foundation of quality leadership and to promote the benefits of gender diversity within the firm’s leadership group.”
EVENTS & EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMING
The WLD Committee seeks to sponsor both internal and external educational and social events throughout the year to promote networking and the professional development of women at the firm. The WLD Committee is focused on providing highly relevant content through panel discussions, mentoring, lunch and learn sessions and relationship building events. Events are developed and conducted by the WLD committee and content for each event is developed for associates at all levels.
