The Women’s Initiatives Committee hosts panel discussions and receptions for women summer associates. Valerie Radwaner, Corporate Partner and Deputy Chair of the firm, moderated a lively and candid discussion with four women partners, representing both corporate and litigation practices, about how they built their careers at Paul, Weiss.

Takeaways included taking charge of your success by asking for feedback after finishing a matter and for advice on how to improve your skills; the importance of building your network both internally and externally; and the benefit of taking advantage of abundant opportunities at Paul, Weiss to do pro bono work.
