Q What’s changed for women in business over your career?
A Women are in business more than ever before. Women starting law firms, managing law firms, chairing practice groups and leading committees, is now commonplace. There are still challenges and some opposition, but the change toward individual empowerment for women has certainly shifted in a positive direction, even over the past 10 years.
Q What qualities do you think a successful woman in your field should have?
A The most successful female attorneys that I know have energy and patience. They give themselves and others grace whenever appropriate. It helps to have a desire to learn, change and grow. Women excel at building meaningful connections and partnerships that not only benefit clients, but also enrich their professional and personal lives.
