The Spencer Fane Women in Business (WIB) Group is an affinity group created to support the firm’s women lawyers. The WIB Group, the first of its kind in the Kansas City legal community, seeks to foster the full participation of our female lawyers within the firm and throughout the civic and business communities. The WIB Group is dedicated to the recruitment, retention, and advancement of female attorneys and promoting a positive, inclusive, and supportive environment for all. To accomplish these goals, the WIB Group implements internal and external initiatives.
Specifically, the WIB Group hosts quarterly social events and an annual professional development workshop for the members of the WIB Group. The WIB Group also plans firm-wide social events and client development events in our major markets. Together this programming creates a community and promotes opportunity for mentorship, sponsorship, and career development to our female lawyers.
