Stanford Women on Boards invites you to celebrate the Women of Stanford Law (WSL) 50th Anniversary Celebration with a virtual program featuring: Mary Cranston, JD ’75; Ellen Richey, JD ’77; and Gabriela Parcella, JD ’94; three Stanford Law School alumnae and sought-after directors who have brought decades of legal and business experience to corporate boardrooms. They will describe how seasoned lawyers contribute to better corporate governance and how lawyers encounter and address bias against attorneys on corporate boards. This conversation will be moderated by Carol Lam, JD ’85 and Justine Gottshall, JD ’94.

MCLE one-hour credit for Elimination of Bias:

This program will address a traditional reluctance on corporate boards to include women and attorneys in their ranks. The course will feature three highly successful women attorneys who have served on multiple corporate boards, who will give their perspectives on the importance of gender diversity in the boardroom and the skills that lawyers bring to corporate governance.
