Lieff Cabraser partner Kelly M. Dermody will be delivering the keynote address tonight at the neXXt Generation International Women’s Day event at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The event runs from 6:00-8:30 p.m. and presents “a conversation about how we unlock opportunities to help our next generation of women leaders advance and flourish.”
“Our theme is Mind the Gap. We’ll facilitate a discussion with leaders who are closing gaps in C-suite and board representation, in pay, and in policies that level the playing field in hopes of building organizations with richly diverse leadership. We’re highlighting women with the ‘XX’ in neXXt to put us in the middle of the future we’re working to build.”
Additional speakers include Julie Bornstein, Redfin Board of Directors and former COO at Stitch Fix, and Jo Dennis, Chief People Officer, Omada Health — with more to come.
The event will take place in the Crown Room, Fairmont San Francisco, 950 Mason Street.
