Improving Women's Working Relationships With Other Women in the Legal Profession

Program Number
Program Date

Andie Kramer, partner in an international law firm, and Alton B. Harris, partner (retired) at Nixon Peabody LLP, discuss the complicated dynamics of womens working relationships with other women. Women, men, and organizations often believe that there is something problematic, even dysfunctional, about these relationships. While mens working relationships with other men are seen as the baseline for healthy same-sex business relationships, womens relationships with other women are often seen as disruptive to their organizations and hurtful to their career advancement. Andie and Al identify and review the underlying reasons for real or perceived women-to-women conflict at work and provide pragmatic advice on how to overcome and avoid such unproductive conflicts. They then provide women, men, and organizations with tools to develop stronger networks that foster womens career success and creating a more supportive and satisfying work environment. The program includes a discussion of the relevance of ABAs Model Rule 8.4(g) and various ABA Resolutions.
