In this episode, Caroline Powell Donelan, Co-Chair of the General Litigation Group at Blank Rome LLP, discusses how being harassed as a young associate by a senior partner, informed her ideas on the importance of self-advocacy, diversity at the leadership level and mandatory training for all. After years of practice in labor & employment law handling many cases similar to her own, she says that we still have a long way to go.  Caroline offers her insight on how companies and firms can help to create change at every level.
