McGuireWoods for the second year was a gold sponsor of the Corporate Counsel Women of Color’s 15th annual Career Strategies Conference. Prior to the conference, McGuireWoods hosted a networking reception on Sept. 24 at Chicago restaurant Barrio. About 20 guests attended the reception, which featured cocktails and hors d’oeuvres created by "Top Chef" alum Katsuji Tanabe, head of Barrio’s kitchen.

McGuireWoods attendees included Richmond partner Candace Blydenburgh, chair of the firm’s African-American Lawyers Network; New York partners Wanda French-Brown and Mirlande Telfort; Chicago partner Yuan-Ying Hsu; and Baltimore partners Melissa Martinez and Ava Lias-Booker, chair of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee.
