Women in Leadership Roundtable

VP, Head of
New Business Development

Cartiga is proud to have launched our first Women In Leadership Roundtable Initiative in NYC. The event was held in the heart of New York City, where the best of the legal community came together. The Women In Leadership Roundtable brought together elite women lawyers, judges, and other legal professionals.

Cartiga had several elected officials as Keynote Speakers, a series of Featured Speakers who sought out trial lawyers and thought leaders in the legal community.


The room was filled with high-powered women lawyers from the tri-state area. The event led to several robust leading topics; the participants had an opportunity to discuss relevant industry issues and, more importantly, solutions. The roundtable created a safe place to network with like-minded women professionals; it empowered the women to focus on being change a agent and making a toolbox to navigate workplace challenges.
