WORKSHOP: The Art of Battle for Women
About the Workshop
The “Art of Battle for Women” Workshop will focus on a discussion of practical techniques that women can use to combat common stereotypes that women face in the workplace. Inspired by The Feminist Fight Club by Jessica Bennett, Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, and KUOW’s new podcast, Battle Tactics for Your Sexist Workplace, attorney Shauna Martin Ehlert of Cozen O’Connor will discuss her experience with how the workplace has evolved over the last 26 years and what still needs to be done. Please come with your war stories and personal experiences as we work together to find solutions to workplace stereotypes and discrimination that women often face.
Light refreshments will be served. We look forward to seeing you!
About Our Speaker
Shauna Martin Ehlert is an attorney with Cozen O’Connor’s Seattle office who has been practicing law for 26 years. Shauna’s practice focuses on insurance coverage matters and claims against professionals. She prides herself on zealous advocacy and professionalism. Shauna is the proud mom of two daughters and has managed to maintain a balance between her career and personal life by working less than full time for most of her career. During her 26 year career, she has personally experienced substantial changes in the workplace, from the introduction of personal computers, voice mail, email, laptops and virtual desktops. However, the question is whether gender stereotypes have evolved as much during that same time period. Shauna is admitted in all of Washington’s courts, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
