Women's Leadership Initiative

Crowell & Moring’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) is dedicated to the recruitment, retention, professional development, and advancement of our female-identifying (“women”) lawyers. WLI is co-chaired by Tiffany Wynn, Sima Namiri-Kalantari, and Alexis DeBernardis, with support from its partner advisor, Nicole Owren-Wiest, and interim co-chairs, Monica Sterling and Rachel Raphael. WLI provides opportunities for women attorneys to develop meaningful professional relationships with their peers, as well as mentors and sponsors. WLI sponsors professional development programming aligned with its mission of recruiting, advancing, supporting, and retaining a community of talented women attorneys across all of the firm’s offices. WLI likewise serves as a resource to, and actively engages with, firm leadership regarding issues of concern to women in the profession.
