Minneapolis, MN – May 21, 2008. Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., held their second annual women's event, “Passport to Success,” on May 14. The annual event is a women-only networking event that brings together top women professionals from across the metro. The evening was hosted by the female lawyers and firm management of Winthrop & Weinstine.
The event, held at the firm's downtown Minneapolis offices, featured inspiring speeches from top women in the metro, as well as a “speed-networking” session. The firm played host to nearly 85 attendees, who enjoyed an evening of celebrating successes and meeting new friends.
Speaking at the event, shareholder Michele Vaillancourt said, “It seems to me that we, as women, have been through a sea of change. Women are now taking the lead at home and in board rooms, executive suites, government, public service and as entrepreneurs — not only in the Twin Cities, but across the United States.”
The firm plans to continue to this annual event and is proud to provide such opportunities to share experiences and explore new ways of connecting and working together.
