At the inaugural GCR Live Women in Antitrust on 9 November, some of the world's top competition practitioners came together for discussion and debate at the Williard Intercontinental in Washington, DC. Edith Ramirez, former chairwoman of the US Federal Trade Commission and current co-head of antitrust at Hogan Lovells, and Sidley Austin partner Kristina Nordlander co-chaired the one-day conference – which featured panel discussions on everything from populism and public interest, to the nexus between competition and innovaton.
The all-conference dinner that evening celebrated the 150 leading practitioners, enforcers, in-house counsel, economics and academics named in GCR's Women in Antitrust 2016 survey. Covington & Burling partner Deborah Garza was presented with GCR's inaugural Pathmaker Award for Diversifying Competition Practice, while Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute, was the conference's dinner speaker.
