Women's competition network established in DC
Global Competition Review
Competition team lawyer Amanda Wait, in partnership with Christine Wilson of Kirkland & Ellis LLP and Teresa Sullivan of Compass Lexecon, recently founded a DC-based network called The Grapevine for female lawyers and economists in the competition community. The Grapevine will host several substantive antitrust and professional development events each year. Programs will focus on new developments and emerging trends in competition and consumer protection law, as well as topics related to professional skills building. As Amanda stated in a recent Global Competition Review article, "There was a lack of female networking opportunities within the industry, and I thought it would be great to create a group where women could share their experiences and inspire one another."
