Lynn Yeakel Moderates Discussion for Professional Women
May 1, 2013
Although it may have sounded like an advanced swimming class, that was not the subject of “Surviving and Thriving in Shark-Infested Waters,” a panel discussion for women in professional services held last month. Lynn Yeakel, director of the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership, moderated the 90-minute conversation in Center City Philadelphia, which was sponsored by Duane Morris LLP.
The panelists were Erica Nemser, global leader, McKinsey Women, McKinsey & Co; Karen Robbins, CIMA, first vice president – investments, UBS; Joanne Szupka, CPA, assurance senior manager and employee benefit plan specialist, BDO USA, LLP; and Dana B. Klinges, partner, Duane Morris.
The conversation included a lively exchange with the audience of 80 women and a handful of men on topics that included the importance of being a rainmaker and the reason for the leaky pipeline of women rising in executive positions.
This was the second conversation that Lynn Yeakel was invited to moderate for Duane Morris. Last year, she moderated a panel discussing the same topic in the firm’s Manhattan office.
