Publication: Spotlight on Women Report 2019

As the firmwide chair of Spotlight on Women, I am excited to share our latest report featuring our efforts in the past year and results achieved. Among the highlights:

  • With the addition of Sandy Brown and Robyn Minter Smyers to Thompson Hine’s Executive Committee, four of nine seats are now occupied by women and minorities. Sandy and Robyn share their perspectives in the “New Leadership – Diverse Perspectives” section.
  • Two of five new partners elected are women, both graduates of Spotlight on Leaders, our leadership development program for select high-potential non-partner women lawyers.
  • In “Setting New Standards,” Karyn Booth, Sarah Hall and JoAnn Strasser provide insights on succeeding in practices long dominated by men.

We thank you for celebrating our successes and helping us make our mark as we continue our mission to support, develop and advance women lawyers and professionals within the firm and in our communities.
