Smashing the Glass(ware) Ceiling: Revolutionizing Bar Training & Education

Tuesday Takeover with Christina Veira & Evelyn Chick.

The path to accreditation, achievement and excellence is clear in many professions, but in the bar world, many talented people find themselves on a winding trail that forks and narrows, sometimes leading to a dead end. It’s time for senior talent to illuminate the path for those walking behind, and shift how we think about and provide bar training and education.
