National Association of Women Lawyers Annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon
July 24, 2014
New York, NY
The National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL) will hold its annual meeting and awards luncheon at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City on July 24, 2014. Law firms, corporations, and governments benefit in myriad ways when women are at the helm. Nevertheless, women are still the minority at most leadership tables. This year’s Annual Meeting will examine the reasons behind the leadership gap and what it takes to be a courageous, confident, and effective leader. Prominent in-house counsel, private practitioners, and government lawyers will offer concrete skills, best practices, and actionable solutions relevant to women lawyers in all legal disciplines who are looking to take and make the most of their seat at the table. The Awards Luncheon will provide a unique opportunity to celebrate and network with over 800 lawyers from around the country as NAWL recognizes and honors leading lawyers, legal departments, and NAWL members who have made exceptional contributions to improve and diversify the legal profession.
At the luncheon firm client Honeywell will receive NAWL’s President’s Award, presented annually to an organization that has championed policies, programs and procedures to retain, promote and advance women attorneys. In addition Professor Anita Hill will receive the Arabella Babb Mansfield Award; NAACP General Counsel and Secretary Kim Kennan will receive the M. Ashley Dickerson Award; former White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler will receive NAWL’s Public Service Award; and former ABA President and current Hunton & Williams partner and Executive Director of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Robert Grey will receive the Lead by Example Award.
Kevin Mayer, Monica Parham and Gail Zirkelbach will be participating. Crowell & Moring is an event sponsor.
