CTLA's Women's Caucus, under the leadership of Kathleen Nastri, Rosemarie Paine and Kara Crismale Burgarella, held their first Symposium on Women in Leadership!

This two day event attracted female attorneys from CT and across the country, including Marianne LeBlanc, Julie Kane and Theresa Bowen Hatch, to share their wisdom, experiences, milestones, successes and motivational stories with each other while enjoying some personal time together, meditation, yoga, networking and relaxation. This rejuvenating experience was so powerful, women can't stop talking about it. Here are just a few comments they made, "Amazing from start to finish", "This was a truly meaningful, inspiring and educational day and a half", "I am energized and inspired by all of the smart, passionate, wonderful women who presented and attended this symposium" and "The speakers were inspirational and instructive, so many best practice points and tips....Thank you, thank you, thank you for a truly remarkable CLE experience".

This extraordinary event was inspirational, powerful and enlightening, and we plan to continue to expand this program to reach even more women throughout New England and the US. The planning is already underway, so stay tuned for more details.
