The Women Attorneys' Network (WAN) is a cross-office committee, dedicated to the firm’s goals of retention and advancement of Crowell & Moring’s female attorneys, at all stages of their careers. WAN is co-chaired by Alexis DeBernardisArlen Pyenson, and Rebecca Ricigliano and includes women from every office and practice group at the firm. The organization sponsors programming, including speakers, panels, and roundtable discussions, focused on professional issues relevant to women, and engages with Firm leadership on issues that affect our female attorneys. Regular engagement involves mentorship and sponsorship opportunities, and also workshops and seminars that address relevant topics.
