Women make up half of the world. But you wouldn't know it by looking at Cleveland's largest law firms. Females graduate from law school at the same rate as males, but few women become partners. Law firms are gradually becoming diverse, but many women, and some men, want more than a big paycheck. They want career paths that allow for families, flexible work hours, job sharing and telecommuting. Recruiting, promoting and keeping the best women lawyers, that's Friday at nine on the Sound of Ideas.
Linda Bluso is partner-in-charge of Brouse McDowell's Cleveland office where she handles corporate business and real estate. Nancy Barnes is a partner at Thompson Hine where she handles business and employment related issues. Carol Schwartz Rendonis a criminal defense lawyer and partner with the female-owned firm Giffin & Kaminski. Barbara Danforth is the executive director of the Greater Cleveland YWCA, and she's also a lawyer!
