Ann Halpern, has deep first hand practical experience of the difficulties women lawyers face in pursuing success. She is herself a lawyer who has worked in every aspect of the legal profession and, for the last 15 years, in a top 10 City practice and so really understands from the inside what it is like to be an ambitious woman in the legal environment. For the last 20 years she has pioneered interventions in training, mentoring and coaching which have helped women to succeed. She is author of Negotiating Skills (the legal practice handbook) and a number of articles which analyse and propose solutions to the issues faced both by organisations and by their women lawyers.
She is joined by other women with extensive experience of working with lawyers and in implementing change in the legal sector. We are deeply committed to our mission both of helping organisations create the environment where women have genuine career choices and yet are able to be their authentic selves and of helping women develop the personal skills and attitudes to realise their full ambitions.
