The Women’s Affinity Leader Group at Jones Day hosted a session focused on Communicating Effectively for all employees. The session had a great mix of participants from new law-school grads to partners in the organization—both female and male—all together for an interactive session to develop communication tools. During the session we focused on:
Improving understanding of how to push past cultural expectations for female communication standards with assertive communication so participants can communicate effectively and professionally.
Developing and practicing personal and professional assertive communication techniques that can be used in various workplace situations, increasing confidence in daily interactions with colleagues and supervisors.
Everyone walked away with new tools and insight into how to apply them to their own day-to-day work.
