“Communication is your ticket to success, if you pay attention and learn to do it effectively.” – Theo Gold
The media is often reporting on the polarization of our society. Increasingly, we witness challenges in communicating due to generational, gender, and cultural differences. As attorneys and advocates, we must learn to bridge those gaps to represent our clients effectively. Using data and representative scenarios, this panel will address gender, generational, and cultural gaps and provide strategies and best practices for bridging these gaps.
