Blank Rome Partner Sophia Lee will present at the 2017 Philadelphia Women in Leadership Symposium, which will be held on September 28, 2017, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., at Janney Montgomery Scott LLC. This year's conference theme is Be Fearless, Influence, Innovate, and Inspire. 

Ms. Lee's panel, "The Difference 'Difference' Makes – Double Minority Leadership," will discuss issues of identity with regard to gender and race, and will address the discourse of equality in the workplace. The panel will address the following questions:

  • How can leadership emerge from such a unique women of color perspective?
  • What kinds of challenges do women of color face in the workplace and in their professional development?
  • How does an organization benefit from the inclusion of such leaders in decision-making roles and positions of power?
