Jennifer leads a team dedicated to supporting our women lawyers in achieving their career goals, including the advancement to partnership, the development of leadership skills, and the enhancement of both client and mentor relationships. The Women’s Initiative also provides educational programs and thought leadership focused on these objectives.
