Partner Kim Yelkin Discusses "Managing Perceptions: When Women Network with Men" at InsideCounsel Conference


InsideCounsel Magazine featured its recent Women, Influence and Power in Law Conference panel discussion "Managing Perceptions: When Women Network with Men," which included Gardere Austin Office Executive Partner Kimberly A. Yelkin. The panel discussion was focused on ways to avoid uncomfortable situations and minimize the gossip in the workplace.

According to the article, as more women climb the ranks, there will be a greater number of opportunities for women to network with more women, which should minimize the opportunities for gossip. "I'm seeing a change, but not as much as I would like," Ms. Yelkin said. "Women have an obligation to help other women. You can't just pull the ladder up behind you."

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.
