Keynote Speaker – Loretta Lynch, Former U.S. Attorney General under the Obama Administration. Ms Lynch delivered the opening key note address and shared her journey to become the first female African American Attorney General and discussed how businesses can navigate and thrive in a changing global workforce.

Keynote Speaker – Alison Levine, Women’s Everest Expedition Team Captain and New York Times Bestselling Author, gave a visionary address entitled ‘On the Edge: The Art of High-Impact Leadership’, drawing on her experiences as team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition.

Spotlight Luncheon Speaker – Lisa Blatt, Partner at Williams & Connolly, a premier litigation firm, who serves as Chair of their Supreme Court and Appellate practice, provided a presentation on current trends and decisions from the US justices.

Tammy said “I was afforded the opportunity to meet with both Alison Levine and former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  Ms Lynch was interested to learn that within the Bermuda Bar Association, women outnumber men currently 250/228. I also shared with the former U.S. Attorney General how her example has informed and inspired so many who reside in Bermuda, our cozy 21 mile Island in the Atlantic which boasts world class infrastructure, a premier international business centre and the ultimate tourism escape. Ms Lynch encouraged us who love and live the law to build a community of female lawyers to sustain us as we navigate the issues of today, to tell our own story and to pay forward the support and guidance we receive.”

Tammy added, “In the words of Ms Lynch, all of us are role models to the women who we know but also to the women we have never met who will see your work, who will see your path, who will see how you have overcome an obstacle and will know that they can too….never underestimate that value to a young girl seeking her way in the world of simply seeing all of you and what you do.“
