Early on May 20, 63 of New York City’s highest-powered women partners gathered for breakfast in a conference room at Debevoise & Plimpton. The meeting was the second such get-together for members of the Kate Stoneman Project, a group founded last summer by 20 women from 10 of New York’s elite law firms. (U.S. history fact: Stoneman was the leader of the women’s suffrage movement, and in 1886 she became the first woman admitted to practice law in New York.)

Quarterly KSP events are meant to introduce these partners to each other and to present a forum to address issues relating to the advancement of women in law. The meetings also provide the lawyers with an opportunity to come together on civic and philanthropic causes. More than anything, the gatherings are a chance for some participants to swap professional war stories.
