WHAT’S THE SECRET?
There isn’t one; or rather, there isn’t one. There are many elements and it’s certainly not magic. It’s really basic common sense, application, and lots of practice! So many of the women lawyers I have met over the years — senior and junior — have something in common. Most of them have been, essentially, ‘dux of their schools since kindergarten’ as I like to say. Many have held positions of responsibility, from class captain, to head of choir at school and analogous roles throughout life, like being officer-bearers for the Women Lawyers. There are leaders everywhere; many women leaders everywhere. And, essentially, they are like you.
