From DGC to GC: Climbing the Last Rung of the Legal Ladder
February 22, 2023 | 01 PM EST
About the Webinar
What do DGCs want? They want access to resume-building opportunities that will help them, eventually, ascend to the GC role.
But many simply aren’t getting it.
According to a recent survey of DGCs:
- 71% believe their current position doesn’t offer the necessary exposure to the C-suite (including working with senior executives on finance matters and strategic initiatives)
- Another 42% say their current position doesn’t provide the substantive management experience (such as leadership or cross-functional management of non-lawyers) required to advance to a GC position
Overall, more than two-thirds of DGCs say limited professional development, advancement opportunities, or lack of a clear career path are major concerns with their current role.
On this episode of the Higher Bar, host Zach Abramowitz chats with Susan Jacobson, Axiom Senior Client Advisor about the unique role of the DGC and how in-house lawyers can gain the skills they need to advance their careers.
Join us on February 22nd at 1PM Eastern to learn more about your peers’ perspective on their role as DGCs and to ensure you have the tools necessary to successfully climb the last rung of the in-house legal ladder.
