RPS Presentation, April 13, 2022– Debra Baker – Shadow Pandemic & Impact on Mental Health.
Debra Baker is a consultant who works with law firms and professional services organizations to inspire growth in their leaders, teams and top talent. She is owner and managing director of GrowthPlay – a women-owned consulting firm that works with clients around the world – and is founder of Law Leaders Lab, a GrowthPlay affiliate focused on law firm transformation.
