How to Start, Re-Start or Jump-Start Your Company's Women's Group


This Jam Session will tell you all about starting up a women's network in your place of work.

Wed, Sep 25, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Kit Chaskin is the Global Director of the Women’s Initiative Network at Reed Smith (WINRS). Under her leadership, Reed Smith has become one of only three firms to qualify for all six requirements of the Women In Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) Gold Standard Certification for three consecutive years. This award reflects a firm’s percentage of women in partnership, leadership and top compensation ranks. Kit also served on Reed Smith’s Executive Committee in 2012. She frequently writes and speaks on topics related to the advancement of women in the legal profession and is often quoted in the legal and mainstream media on issues impacting professional women.

When not working on women’s issues, Kit has a thriving practice as a partner in Reed Smith’s insurance recovery practice where she counsels U.S. and international clients on risk transfer, risk management and policy terms. Kit’s teams have made multi-million dollar recoveries under Errors & Omissions policies, Directors and Officers Liability policies and Employment Practices Liability policies through arbitration, mediation and negotiation. Kit maintains an active litigation docket which also includes Title policy and Property policy disputes.
