Launched in 2014 Sayyidaat Dentons provides a networking forum for professional women across industry sectors, creating a community to support and build the success of women both within Dentons and across the region.

The following is a snapshot of some of the key initiatives:

Presenting intimate, on-the-ground perspectives, Courageous Counsel uses personal interviews to recount the risks, missteps, milestones and lessons experienced by women general counsel. The book documents the many different roads to achievement taken by these pioneers and helps provide the tools for rising women lawyers today to succeed at the executive level. It has been the focus of a national speaking tour on the key issues facing women professionals today.
