Lindquist & Vennum LLP is excited to continue our discussion among women leaders who have achieved their professional goals with those who are finding their path to success.

Men and women attendees will engage in thought-provoking, small-group discussions inspired by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant’s four-installment series in the New York Times, in which they delve into research on barriers to women’s progress in achieving leadership status, existence of organizational pitfalls, and most importantly, proposals for men, women and corporate America to increase the realization of female and organization-wide success.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
