Volume 2013, Issue 1

In this issue of Diversity Matters, we explore the vast talents of our diverse attorneys, particularly our women. You will read about their accomplishments – Nina M. Gussack named Rainmaker of the Year by InsideCounsel magazine; Barbara W. Mather, Amy B. Ginensky and Nina making the Benchmark Top 250 Women in Litigation list; Isla L. Long being named a recipient of the Multicultural Award by the National Diversity Council; and our four new female partners: Ann B. Graff, Deborah Kovsky-Apap, Delia C. Donahue, and Yvonne M. McKenzie. You will also read about their endeavors, everything from serving in the Israeli Army, to working with the Network of Arab American Professionals to the perspective of young associates who believe they have huge footsteps to follow. As we look ahead in 2013, we will continue to make strides so all of our attorneys may have the opportunities to be as successful as the ones you will read about in this issue. We cannot, however, become complacent with the accomplishments of a few. There is still much work to be done to improve the retention and advancement of our diverse attorneys.
