Cozen O’Connor: The 2018 Women in Law Roundtable Discussion

The 2018 Women in Law Roundtable Discussion

Friday, October 19, 2018

Suzanne Mayes, co-chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Public & Project Finance Practice, participated in The Legal Intelligencer’s “Women in Law Roundtable Discussion.” Suzanne was one of 10 panelists who discussed solutions to challenges facing female attorneys and ways to advance the role of women in law. The panelists shared their thoughts on a variety of topics including, career advancement and the path to partnership, the importance of finding the right mentors, work-life balance, and gender-pay equality in law firms.

On the topic of work-life balance, Suzanne said, “It is more about integration of work and career, career and family, and trying to figure out what works, and the other thing I tell folks is it is a very personal balance, so that you can’t just mimic what you see in terms of women that are 10 or 15 years ahead of you because it can be dictated by things like what the significant other does, number of children, whether the children have any special needs, if there are older parents that need tending to.”
