In 2022, it is incumbent on law firms not only to develop meaningful policies and procedures to attack microaggressions but also train staff and attorneys how to recognize microaggressions and to avoid being complicit when witnessing one take place. In our annual Fearless Female Founders panel, our panelists will discuss what they are doing in the context of owning, operating, and managing their small law firms to change this.


  • What are microaggressions and how might women lawyers experience them in the practice of law?
  • How does ignorance of privilege and intersectionality exacerbate microaggressions and contribute to negative work environments for women of color?
  • How to build and manage relationships with clients, referral sources, and other third parties external to the firm, devoid of microaggressions. 
  • How to train staff and attorneys in a law firm to recognize and stop microaggressions so as to create a more inclusive culture in law firms, generally.
