The featured speaker is Susan Brewer of Steptoe & Johnson, first woman to become CEO of a major law firm in West Virginia. Only 8 percent of law firms nationwide are led by a woman. The event begins with an informal networking reception at 11:30 a.m. Lunch follows at noon.

Brewer, a member of the firm and a litigator specializing in professional liability defense, joined Steptoe & Johnson in 1980 and has served as managing member of the Morgantown office for nearly 20 years and as a member of the firm's executive committee for 16 years.

Brewer received her legal education at George Mason University School of Law where she was a member of the law review staff and received honors in trial advocacy. She received her undergraduate education at Duke University.

The mission of Elevations, the Charleston Area Alliance Professional Women's Network, is to enrich, empower and elevate women to achieve success.

Tickets are $35 Alliance members/$45 future members.

We are unable to invoice for groups with fewer than 10 or issue refunds for cancellations received less than 48 hours prior to the event.
