Women's Initiative

Women's Initiative

Labaton Sucharow doesn't just hire outstanding female attorneys. We help build them.

Through our practices and programs, from recruitment, development and recognition to our Women's Networking and Mentoring Initiative, we provide an environment that fosters growth, leadership, and success for our female attorneys.

Recognizing that opportunities for advancement and collaboration have not always been equitable to women in business, Labaton Sucharow launched the Women's Networking and Mentoring Initiative in 2007. Since then, we have been host to dozens of exceptional guests, including senior executives from a wide array of commercial markets, as well as leaders in politics, law, and global not-for-profits.

Partners Serena P. Hallowell and Carol C. Villegas serve as co-chairs of the Firm's Women's Initiative.

The lessons that the women's initiative teach are applicable to so many areas of business and life. The speakers shine a light on the obstacles facing women professionals and describe solutions with an authoritative voice that comes from experience.
