Bowditch partner Samantha McDonald will speak on "Getting a Seat at the Table: The How and Hidden Whys of Community Involvement," along with Mary Kate Feeney and Keiko Orrall, at the MetroWest Conference for Women, held September 19 at the Sheraton Framingham.

This interactive panel will emphasize the importance of participating in the community and help participants identify roles that fits with their lives and professions. In addition, participants will be able to get started with a strategy and get connected to begin their community involvement.

The MetroWest Conference for Women is produced by She's Local. Its goal: to inspire, connect, motivate and move women through every stage along their path.
