Mayfield serves as a featured speaker at two conferences

Bonnie Mayfield, a member of Dykema’s Litigation and Labor & Employment practices, served as a featured speaker at the 11th annual POWER: Opening Doors for Women Conference in Chicago on June 11.

 The theme of this year’s conference was “Shared Responsibility: Women and Men for Gender Equality.” The event featured economists, sociologists, and corporate leaders discussing the shared responsibility of gender equality. Mayfield is the author of “Succeeding Despite the Crash, Burn & Microinequities,” which teaches how individuals can deal with and overcome microaggressions and microinequities to achieve success.

 Microaggressions are everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults — intentional or not — that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership. Microinequities are the byproducts of microaggressions and are only potential barriers to success if the recipient internalizes them.

Mayfield was also a featured panelist at the Corporate Counsel Women of Color One-Day Law Firm Associates Career Strategies Conference, which took place at the New York Hilton in April. Mayfield was a co-presenter of a session entitled “Building a Book of Business – A Step-by-Step Pitch Simulation.” She also discussed with attendees how to achieve success and overcome microaggressions and microinequities.

 Mayfield represents clients in labor and employment, product liability, and commercial matters. She also is a member of Dykema’s National Trial Team, a group of experienced trial lawyers who have taken more than 650 cases, in all areas of legal practice, to verdict.

In law school, Mayfield was a member of New York University's Law Review.
