Women at Paul, Weiss
Paul, Weiss has made tremendous strides in preparing and promoting women for partnership and leadership positions, and we continue to promote women to our equity partnership at levels that surpass industry benchmarks. But we can, and must, do more. We are sharply focused on the retention and promotion of our women lawyers, and we are committed to providing them with the tools to achieve professional success.
On March 31, corporate counsel Femi Austin participated in a panel, “Beyond this Moment: Leadership & Success in the Law,” sponsored by the Advancement Initiative in celebration of Women’s History Month. The Advancement Initiative provides a forum for advancement techniques, networking and relationship-building focused on female lawyers of color positioned to be the next generation of leaders in the legal profession.
Femi joined Karen Hale, recently named Chief Legal Officer of Novartis; Kimberly Banks McKay, General Counsel at West Pharmaceutical Services; Sheea Sybblis, Associate General Counsel at Nestle Health Services; and Kim Crouch, Legal Counsel and International Lead, Privacy and Cybersecurity, General Motors. The panel was co-sponsored by Paul, Weiss and the Executive Women of New Jersey.
