Pond Lehocky to host Women Connect event

Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano is hosting Women Connect, a networking event for women in the workplace featuring conversations with women leaders in the business world. The event is being co-sponsored by Esquire Bank.

The keynote speaker will be famed businesswoman and mathematician Janet Hill, who currently serves on the board of directors of the Carlyle Group, Dean Foods and Esquire Bank. She is a trustee of Duke University and was appointed by President Barack Obama to the John F. Kennedy for the Performing Arts. She is also the wife of former NFL running back Calvin Hill and mother of former NBA player Grant Hill.

There will also be breakout sessions with industry leaders Catherine Carlson and Holly DePalma. Carlson is Senior Vice President, Revenue and Strategy with the Philadelphia Eagles. Prior to that, she spent 11 years as Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships and Premium Activation with the Orlando Magic. DePalma is a business consultant who specializes in helping organizations optimize their talent using The Predictive Index, which uses psychometric testing to understand what motivates employees and drives their performance. She will be reviewing attendees’ Predictive Index test results at the event that night.

The event will take place Thursday, October 3, 2019, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Pond Lehocky’s Center City headquarters. Registration will begin at 3:30 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be provided throughout the event.

Hosting the event is the latest in Pond Lehocky’s initiative to support gender diversity in the workplace. The firm has made great strides embracing gender diversity—more than two-thirds of its staff, 58 percent of its managers and 45 percent of its attorneys are women. In addition, three-fifths of Pond Lehocky’s executive team are women.

Pond Lehocky acknowledges that there is still a long way to go in the fight for gender equality. However, the firm events including Women Connect will support women in the efforts to break the glass ceiling.
