MIAMI – March 14, 2019 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig P.A. Shareholder Alexandra Aguirre participated as a speaker at the Women in Law and Leadership Summit in Miami on March 13. The Summit, “Awareness into Action: Inspiring Change,” explored the career obstacles, risks, and rewards on the path to a fulfilling and productive career for women lawyers.
The Women in Law Summit series brings together private practice and in-house counsel women lawyers for networking and learning opportunities on topics including mentorship, gender equity, and career management.
Aguirre led a roundtable discussion on “Multigenerational Differences in the Workplace: Working with and Leading Millennials.” The discussion focused on identifying competing work mindsets and addressed potential strategies for adapting to differences and creating a work environment that yields the best results for all involved.
“In 2016, millennials became the largest segment in the labor force, so it is critical that we make a concerted effort to recognize their unique work styles and professional expectations in order to foster an environment that both attracts and retains this generation of workers,” noted Aguirre, who is based in Greenberg Traurig’s Miami office and is a member of the firm’s Latin American & Iberian Practice. “I’m honored to have had the opportunity to lead a discussion, along with in-house counsel from many of South Florida’s largest corporations, where we could explore key strategies for enhancing the legal work environment to address multigenerational work style differences.”
Aguirre focuses her practice on mergers & acquisitions and domestic and international corporate transactions, including corporate finance and debt & equity private placements throughout Latin America. Additionally, Aguirre advises families in matters relating to running a privately held business by providing corporate advice tailored to family businesses, including corporate and family governance structure polices and process, succession planning, building and preserving business value and equity, executive compensation, and exit strategies.
She is an active member of Greenberg Traurig’s Women’s Initiative, and speaks regularly at gender balanced-focused events around the world. Furthermore, Aguirre serves on the Board of Trustees of the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF), an affiliate of the Organization of American States (OAS), dedicated to helping vulnerable people in Latin America and the Caribbean by providing socio-economic development programs, as well as the Board of Directors of Fundación Uno, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance the welfare of underserved people in Central America.
