2nd Annual Full Stack GC Conference, New York
What is a full stack GC? Like a full stack engineer, the full stack GC faces a multitude of diverse issues that require a full skill set. Faced with this challenge, our annual conference aimed to provide practical guidance for those of us aspiring to be the “full stack GC.”
We had over 90 GCs (100% attendance), and top-notch speakers, including Erin Abrams (VP of Legal Affairs, Via), Jennifer Berrent (General Counsel, WeWork), Brian Chase (General Counsel, ServiceChannel), Kathryn Ciano (Senior Regulatory Counsel, Uber), Tonio DeSorrento (CEO, Vemo Education), Sarah Feingold (General Counsel, Vroom), Adam Greenberg (Lead Counsel, Warby Parker), Caroline McCaffrey (General Counsel, Clarifai), David Pashman (General Counsel, Meetup), Michal Rosenn (General Counsel, Kickstarter), Michael Yang (General Counsel, Pinterest) and Michael Zuckert (General Counsel, SVB Financial Group).
