What Are Women Missing? National Girlfriends Networking Day!

This is your invitation to join The New Agenda, Ms. JD, She Negotiates, and the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles at Proskauer Rose in Century City on June 4, 2013, at 9 a.m. for National Girlfriends' Networking Day. We'll be networking, of course, as well as live streaming a stellar panel of successful women including Emmy Award winning journalist Soledad O'Brien, Editor-in-Chief of More Magazine Leslie Jane Seymour, angel investor and advisor of Women Entrepreneurs, Joanne Wilson, and WNBA player and coach, Taj McWilliams Franklin

This is also your invitation to attend the LIVE event in New York City and a half-dozen other live streaming events in San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Rochester and Short Hills.

Why should you attend the Second Annual National Girlfriends' Networking Day?


  • The women in your firm may mentor you (teach you the ropes) but not sponsor you (put their skin in your game).
  • Or the women in your firm may do nothing for you.
  • Or, worse, the women in your firm may sabotage you. (Men will too so don’t think this is about "cat fights" or "Queen Bees" or any other women hating tropes).

This is about the accumulation of wealth and power and no gender owns avarice or generosity. Speaking of which, a huge round of applause to Proskauer in Century City and Arnold & Porter in San Francisco for lending their offices and catering support to the live streaming events in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

L.A. Mayor - "I Love My Women Lawyers"

When I was at the annual gala for the 100+ year old Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles (WLALA) recently, the Mayor said from the podium that he loved his women lawyers because “they never asked for a raise!” 

The nearly 300 attendees dropped their jaws pretty much at once. We underestimate in-group and implicit bias to our peril because there are special pitfalls for women that the guys don't have to deal with. See Karen v. Kevin over at the Atlantic Wire here.

All of that said, to whom do you turn?

You turn to your sisters in your national network – women willing to put their skin in your game because they understand the concept of the “anchor” in negotiations. 

If women’s work is being paid substantially less well than men’s, that serves as an incredibly strong “anchor” that will influence any compensation negotiation in its direction throughout the course of the bargaining session.

So what’s the answer? Turn to your national network. Read about it and participate in it here - The New Agenda » National Girlfriends’ Networking Day. Regardless of the “facts on the ground” in your profession or business today, I urge you to support and participate in National Girlfriends’ Networking Day.

And if you’re an old dog like me, donate to it. We’re counting on our awesome young women to destroy the wage gap forever. Still, the revolution must be funded!

Just an all natural healthy skin care product
but remember to read the labels for ingredients that are dangerous.

High-quality grapeseed oil for in skin care should always be cold pressed,
though. If you use it rarely, keep in the refrigerator, to prolong
its freshness.

A scar can be silvery, pink or brown in colour and they can range in size and severity.
For instance, it has been proven to reduce the appearance of chicken pox, surgery scars, irregular
skin pigmentation, burns, cuts and injuries. Sometimes, people are concerned that the oil will
make their skin very oily, when in reality, as it is a dry oil it will absorb easily into
your skin and leave very little left on the surface.
