MBBA Women’s History Month Event – Black Women Lawyers: Lessons in Leadership

On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the MBBA held our MBBA Women's History Month Event, titled "Black Woman Lawyers: Lessons in Leadership." This inaugural event was such a huge success that registration filled to capacity in a matter of days, with over 60 registrants added to our wait list! The program featured black women lawyer leaders who each spoke for 10 minutes in a “TED like” talk about the subject of leadership as a black woman.
