WMH Women’s Initiative Hosts Leading By Example Panel
October 10, 2017
WMH’s Women’s Initiative hosts a group of more than 80 prominent women lawyers for an engaging panel discussion on the role of women in business, public service, politics, and the law.
Hosted in the Firm’s lower Manhattan office, the event featured a panel discussion with Congresswoman Kathleen Rice of New York’s fourth congressional district; Stacey Cumberbatch, the former Commissioner of the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services and a former member of the NYC Legal Department; Jane Yang, a Director in the New York office of Meadow Partners, a private real estate investment and asset management firm; and Jacquelyn Kasulis, assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York.
“Professional women continue to shoulder a unique burden and face difficult choices in ways many of our male counterparts sometimes fail to appreciate,” said Catherine Sloane, a partner at WMH and a co-leader of the Firm’s Women’s Initiative. “This program provided a powerful opportunity to build a community of professional women operating at the pinnacle of their career, and we look forward to continuing to create a platform that empowers women across business, law, politics, and public service.”
