PODER25™ offers exceptional programming, targeted coaching, leadership and professional development, and cross-member connections to create key and collaborative relationships with mentors, sponsors, validators and advisors within a robust General Counsel and in-house counsel network. 

Our programming, individual and group coaching, are grounded in the PODER25™ Competency Model and focused on developing the key knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics necessary to perform at the highest levels of legal departments. We facilitate two intensive in-person development sessions at our Corporate Counsel Conference and Annual Convention each year as well as monthly virtual sessions on competencies related to Exercising Good Judgment, Thinking and Acting Strategically, Building Strong Business Relationships, Managing and Leading Effectively and Promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, among others.

Select members also participate in the PODER25™ General Counsel Boot Camp sponsored and facilitated by world-renowned attorneys at DLA Piper, a rigorous two-day in-person learning experience that empowers participants to face the complex challenges of the General Counsel position. Through our comprehensive programming, targeted coaching, and active network, we position, promote and empower our members for serious consideration and selection for the highest positions in corporate legal departments.
