Coblentz Signature Events: Women in Conversation

Coblentz’s women attorneys created our signature event, Women in Conversation, in 2009 to bring together talented, inspiring, and influential women leaders in business, science, the arts, sports, politics, and the community. Women in Conversation allows us to share the stories of celebrated women with our firm clients, colleagues, and friends – women who are themselves at the highest levels in their own fields – in a conversational format.

Women in Conversation attendance is by invitation-only. If you are interested in attending a future program, please email

Our past speakers include celebrated chef and restauranteur, Dominique Crenn; television writer, producer, and director Nell Scovell; President of the National Academy of Sciences Marcia McNutt; President of the University of California system Janet Napolitano; legendary artist Linda Ronstadt; ODC Founder and Artistic Director Brenda Way; Olympic athlete and sports broadcaster Jessica Mendoza; entrepreneur and philanthropist Elinor “Nell” Newman; and film and theater actor Patricia Clarkson.
