The Fourth Floor

The Fourth Floor: A Next Level Community


An ecosystem for women change makers:

We grow careers and companies by connecting female legal executives & industry leaders to founders.

We CREATE and NURTURE symbiotic and mutually beneficial relationships between founders of early stage companies AND experienced in-house attorneys and industry leaders  who may act as mentors, sponsors, investors, or advisory board members.  

We BELIEVE there have always been networks for male powerbroking that drive entrepreneurship for the benefit of overwhelmingly male participants.    

But now we SEE a future where self-contained ecosystems jump start innovation and growth opportunities for overwhelmingly female participants.  

We ARE an independent and invitation-only NEXT LEVEL COMMUNITY.

"I am so impressed with the women I met at the Fourth Floor soft launch. The founders all had amazing stories and vision, the speakers were thoughtful and provocative, and I left thinking not only was this about time, but that everyone in the room was a rock star." 

         - Louise Firestone, SVP and General Counsel of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc.

"Having been in the legal industry for almost two decades, I am often challenged and frustrated by the lack of mentors with whom I have shared experiences and backgrounds. I am excited about The Fourth Floor and the possibility of connecting with an incredible community of women leaders who are committed and interested in shaping our present and future with inclusive compassion, intellectual curiosity, and authenticity. I can't wait to see what's next!"

  - Jennifer Chung, GC, AccuWeather

I love the values behind the Fourth Floor -- that women can and should support one another and when we do, we will all win. As an entrepreneur, I have benefited from the support of amazing female General Counsels over the years who have been true business partners. This talented group is often an untapped resource and I'm thrilled that the Fourth Floor is here to change that dynamic.
