On December 8, 2018, Wigdor LLP Partner Jeanne M. Christensen will be a featured speaker at Get Money Get Paid, a one-day conference in Brooklyn, NY that is all about empowering women to harness their leadership potential at work. The conference is hosted by Ladies Get Paid, a national advocacy organization that teaches women how to navigate workplace politics and policies in order to elevate their careers and get paid what they deserve. The organization is also known for supporting policies that work to make workplaces more inclusive and to eliminate the gender wage gap.
Ms. Christensen’s upcoming panel is titled “The Changemakers.” As a leading plaintiffs’ attorney who has helped hundreds of women combat gender discrimination and sexual harassment, Ms. Christensen will discuss how to advocate for yourself in the workplace in order to help earn the wages you deserve, drive positive social change and promote a culture of respect for all women. She will be joined by co-panelists Netta Jenkins, the Head of Diversity and Inclusion for IAC Applications, and Katie Bethell, the Founder and Executive Director of Paid Leave U.S., a national organization fighting to win paid family and medical leave for all.
