The Silent Biases Women Face in Law with Robin Arnold

The Silent Biases Women Face in Law with Robin Arnold Build Your Book

What biases exist for women in law today? How can they stand out? What is something that men need to understand about women in law? What about senior leadership? What’s the balance look like for being authentic vs. putting on a facade and is that even the right gradient?

In this episode, we speak with Robin Arnold. She’s a partner at Blue Williams, mom of 6 kids, and wife of Nick Arnold (our podcast guest from the previous week’s episode).

We get into Robin’s story of how she ended up in her practice and what’s helped her grow it. We get downright candid and honest about topics like:

  • How clients and peers often perceive women in law…
  • What young women in law can do to build a tribe of mentors…
  • What it takes to raise 6 kids with a husband who’s also a law firm partner…
  • The silent biases that clouds judgement and decisions in law…
  • and more!

You can find Robin on LinkedIn and at Blue Williams.

We know this is going to be a controversial episode. She’s here to give her personal and candid perspective on what it takes to succeed as a woman in law. Undoubtedly, there may appear to be things in there which you might not agree with. We know that. The purpose of this podcast is to share many different stories, and we think this story too deserves to be shared. We’d like to invite you to listen to it with an open mind. And if it at the end of it, you disagree and feel strongly about it, we’d love to hear your take on it.
