Managing Perceptions When Women Network with Men

Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference

1:45-2:45 p.m. CDT

Gardere Austin Office Executive Partner Kimberly A. Yelkin, chair of the Firm's Government Affairs Practice Group, is scheduled to participate in a panel discussion at the Women, Influence & Power in Law conference in Washington, D.C. Ms. Yelkin will be joined by Salley Narey of Fireman's Fund Insurance and Rob Garretson from United States Steel Corp. to discuss "Managing Perceptions When Women Network with Men" during the Thursday session, offering tips for minimizing uncomfortable scenarios.

The three-day conference, presented by Summit Professional Network, is in its second year, and this is the second time that Ms. Yelkin has been invited to participate. In 2013, Summit Professional Network's InsideCounsel magazine named Ms. Yelkin and Ms. Narey co-recipients of the "Sharing the Power" award, an award is presented jointly to a female general counsel and a female law firm partner who have collaborated to increase the economic empowerment of one or more female partners in that firm.

Gardere is also a sponsor of this year's conference and is scheduled to host a breakfast for conference attendees.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
