True North: Women With Direction

Helping Women Find Their Paths

True North, Husch Blackwell’s enrichment series for women, examines the vital role women play in business, as well as the challenges they face in work-life management. The program encourages the firm’s women lawyers and clients to explore professional growth and build relationships.

True North’s educational and networking events are usually held in relaxed settings outside the office. Whatever the event – museum tour, inspirational breakfast, dinner theater, wine tasting – the casual atmosphere is conducive to sharing stories about work and personal lives. Connections among women are forged and strengthened.

The program started in 2004 at Husch Blackwell’s Kansas City office and has expanded to numerous other Husch Blackwell markets. The firm’s junior women lawyers are encouraged to get involved and help host programs planned in their cities. This collaboration fosters relationships that benefit attorneys at all experience levels and the firm.

By helping participants determine the professional and personal paths that best suit them, True North allows women to find their own “true north.”
