As part of
The Advancement Initiative, McGuireWoods co-sponsored a June 2 networking brunch in New York for
women attorneys of color practicing in the areas of banking, finance,
credit and structured finance law.
New York debt finance partner
helped organize the event, which prompted candid conversations around the
unique experiences midlevel and senior women attorneys of color share and
how to handle professional development opportunities and challenges.
The Advancement Initiative is a network of women lawyers of color in the
New York/New Jersey metro area who are in their third to 15th year of
practice. The main objective of the initiative is to harness the strength
of individual professional networks to create spaces where midlevel and
senior female attorneys of color can support each other in mentorship,
networking, client referrals and employment opportunities.
