Gunster is committed to the professional growth of women in leadership positions, and has created the Women’s Leadership Forum to further increase opportunities to advance women lawyers into leadership roles within the firm and the community at large. Male and female attorneys at Gunster are invited to participate in the initiative, which offers a variety of leadership and training programs aimed at identifying pathways to success.
