Global Law Firm Reed Smith Sponsors WIN Summit 2017

Unique Negotiation Event Coincides with International Women’s Day

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Women’s Insights on the Art of Negotiation (WIN) Summit, the New
York-based conference dedicated to women and the art of negotiation, has
announced the addition of Reed
— a global law firm that, for the last six years in a row,
has achieved the Women in Law Empowerment Forum’s highest ranking for
promoting and fairly compensating women — as a sponsor of its 2017

“Whether at home or at the office, not a day goes by that I am not
negotiating something,” said Cindy
, managing partner of Reed Smith’s New York office and a
partner in the firm’s labor and employment group. “The truth is, in any
profession, negotiation is a skill that is essential to achieve results
on behalf of your company, your clients, and to advance your own career.
Not only are we sponsoring the WIN Summit again this year, but Reed
Smith is also proud to be sending some of our attorneys and clients to
this conference so they are empowered with training to better negotiate
on behalf of their businesses and themselves.”

Summit 2017
is scheduled for March 7 and 8 to coincide with
International Women’s Day. Professional women will gather to learn,
engage and grow through the negotiating skills and experiences of
educators, executives, business leaders and glass-ceiling breakers.
Speakers will include world-renowned instructors from leading
universities, including Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, and Chicago Booth as
well as respected voices from the business, public and legal sectors —
including Reed Smith.

“We are tremendously proud to have Reed Smith once again be our title
sponsor,” says Jack
, Chairman, The
Negotiation Institute (TNI).
“Their continuing commitment to
the advancement of women in the law and providing outstanding skills
training to their work force is unparalleled. Too often we find that
women’s initiatives are little more than a page on the corporate
website, Reed Smith puts their beliefs into action.”

The program will run on Tuesday, March 7 and Wednesday, March 8 from
8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Both days will include instruction, panel
discussion and breakout sessions. As it has done in the past, the event
will also coordinate with appropriate agencies to provide CLE credits
for attorneys and HR credits for qualifying Human Resources
professionals, with both disciplines expected to provide in excess of 10
credit hours.
