I really enjoyed this video. I have been part of a women attorneys' association that has seemed to have lost its direction a bit. All of the analysis and guidance on implicit bias and how to advance one's self as a female attorney was wonderful. I plan to share this CLE with my group in hopes the guidance reinvigorates the group.
- Anne R.

Terrific presentation. As the former male head of a law firm I recommend that every young lawyer see this, female or male.
- Joseph C.
- Michael U.
This was the most useful speech I've ever seen on women's issues in law firms.
- Kyla G.
This was excellent. Too bad this wasn't a required course when I was in law school.

- Gail E.
A true inspiration for young women attorneys!
- Anna R.
Great Course. I learned a lot about bias, and how it affects the business of law practices. Additionally, I learned a great deal about developing business, what the attributes of a successful rainmaker is, and tactics that aid in enhancing reputation
- Mark W.
Very informative and thought-provoking. The content of the written material provided was not discussed in the course. It would have been nice if the written materials correlated with what the speaker was talking about, i.e. I had to rewind the course to take notes on the 4 characteristics of a rainmaker because it was not in the written materials.
- Dena S.
- Ozlelm V.
Super good course
- Ellen W.
Very practical tips for women in the workplace. Excellent presentation. Excellent content!
- Ije O.
Very informative than I thought it would be. Very good, and i'm impressed.
She is a very good speaker and I felt engaged throughout the seminar. She made excellent points about how to cultivate empowerment and help others grow and it made me feels as though we might be equals - which is the kind of feeling that makes you want to work with that person and support that person. That is true connection that is a foundation for rainmaking and fostering lasting relationships. I enjoyed this presentation very much!
- Morgan W.
I really enjoyed this seminar.
- rosa s.
Excellent observations about the difficulties women face in large law firm settings.
- Caroline P.
Thank you so much! I am going to recommend your course.
- Nerissa S.
This program would be good for both men and women that want to do better economically in the practice of law. But to do well you must be welling to step up, work hard and put in time and thought.
- Linda S.
great stuff. didn't think i was going to benefit from a course like this as i am already a female equity partner however, i was pleasantly surprised by the relevance of the material and realize there is more to do to pave the way for others as a mentor/sponser.
- Jamie B.
This is one of the best courses!
- Susan V.
Thoughtful and practical - fantastic!
- Daniela P.
Good topic and content. When the presenter discussed the four attributes of a rainmaker, she omitted discussion of the first one: engagement. She latter mentioned it but did not discuss it to start. That's unfortunate, because it was an interesting and critical part of the presentation.
- jon o.
Finally a brilliant and focused discussion on women and power in law firms. Well done!

I was "prejudiced" to not like this course, but it turned out that it was one of the best I have listened to in the 10 years of being a bar member. Kudos!
- Sarah S.
The course was well laid out on the challenges and personality types present in the legal profession and how they tend to be grouped by gender. The last part was a nice addition where the discussion of the workplace concerns traditionally applied to women are actually cross-gender in modern society, work-life balance.
- Paul T.
Excellent presentation. Wish that I listen to or attended such a presentation early in my career when few women were hired by large law firms.

Top notch. Amy Oppenheimer is strictly blue ribbon. She glides delightfully from one relevant firm anecdote to another, in a manner that is at once highly relatable & confidence-inspiring. Infused with many bonus "aha" moments.
- Kath W.
Very knowledgeable instructor with a very pragmatic approach
- Laurel T.
a thoughtful and informative presentation on an important topic.
- Dana K.
Excellent presentation.

Thoroughly enjoyable and informative course. Fabulous speaker - speaks with authority and kindness - and I would believe it would be especially useful to young female attorneys at large firms with great tips on how to become rainmakers.
- Shari R.
Excellent! I am a 62 y/o woman, retired govt attorney and the course resonated so loudly to me! Even though I am retired, the course was valuable and applicable to life in general, not just law/work.

- Amy Z.
Thoroughly enjoyed this video. Would love to hear more from her.
- Ana-Karine B.
Focus was on women, however; many men confront all these issues as well, insofar as these issues and situations apply to all human beings in the work place. It appears in 2016, that biases are gender neutral. That should be covered too.

I think breaking into the legal profession for the "lost generation" of law students who graduated and took the bar during the recession is a big challenge too - more so for women. This challenge is not easily overcome because of the bias issues you have discussed. Thank you for the course.
- Emily P.
Great lecture
- Olga B.
would like Pat to mentor my wife who is capable of being a leader in a large health care system in NW, but who has many of the hurdles and barriers in front of her that Pat talks about!!
