Glass ceiling

WAYLAND

Is there a glass ceiling for women who are lawyers?

A Wayland woman who is a partner in a law firm argues that there is -- and says there's a strong argument that changes should be made.

Lauren Stiller Rikleen, a partner who works at Bowditch & Dewey's Framingham office, has written a book titled, “Ending the Gauntlet: Removing Barriers to Women’s Success in the Law.”

She tells the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester that law firms can't continue the way they've been going because it's too costly for them to keep hiring, losing and replacing bright workers.
