Lerners Launches Women’s Symposium
Lerners LLP is set to launch a dynamic new speakers series centered around educating, inspiring and empowering professional women to lean in and achieve their goals. Beginning in February, the Lerners Women’s Symposium will serve to showcase inspiring and dynamic women who have made significant achievements in their lines of work – from entrepreneurs to leading political figures.
The inaugural event, to be held on February 7, 2017, will feature Tiziana Casciaro, Associate Professor of Organizational Behaviour and HR Management at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. In an intimate conversation she will share strategies for making networking not only more bearable, but perhaps even enjoyable for the networking-averse.
“Lerners LLP is very proud to launch this signature speaker series as part of our efforts to build leadership among women across London through inspiring stories that cultivate leadership and success,” notes Yola S. Ventresca, Partner at Lerners LLP. “Having Tiziana Casciaro as our first speaker is a great way to begin the series, given her research and strategies to help recast networking in a more positive light, including how you can make the focus about learning, identify common interests, or assign a higher purpose to the practice.”
As associate professor of organizational behaviour and HR management, Tiziana has co-written a study that looks at the sometimes negative psychological impact professional networking can have on an individual.
Adds Ventresca: “Tiziana has served as an advisor to corporations and firms in the United States and Canada. Her research has been featured in the Economist, the Financial Times, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Huffington Post, USA Today, the Times of London, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, and TIME magazine. We’re hoping that her spirit of leadership will inspire our business community to reach higher and further.”
Lerners LLP is excited for this new series. For over 85 years, Lerners LLP has been supporting the legal needs of Ontarians – working with individuals, families, businesses and institutions to deliver the best representation possible.
