The New York Chapter of the Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law invites you to join us for our second annual Leadership Forum on Tuesday, November 5. Join women attorneys from across the New York City area for a night of inspiration, celebration and networking as we honor chapter members with the New York Coalition Leadership Award, and we present the annual Inspiration Award to a female attorney who is a consistent advocate for women in the profession.
We are also pleased to announce that this year’s recipient of the Inspiration Award is Susan Herman, President of the ACLU, one of Crain’s Most Powerful Women of 2019, and constitutional law scholar at Brooklyn Law School. She writes and speaks extensively on constitutional and criminal procedure topics for scholarly and other publications, ranging from law reviews and books to periodicals and on-line publications. Her most recent book, Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy, is the winner of the 2012 Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize.
We are also pleased to welcome Rhonda Joy McLean--winner of the Coalition's 2018 Inspiration Award--as our keynote speaker. Rhonda is the President and CEO of RJMLEADS LLC, a leadership consultant company launched in 2019. She is the former Deputy General Counsel of Time Inc., where she managed one-third of the Law Department and oversaw legal compliance and data privacy protocols for over 200 clients and 22 brands for nearly twenty years. Rhonda is a co-author of The Little Black Book of Success series (along with her business partners Elaine Meryl Brown and Marsha Haygood), and is also a principal of LEADS LLC, a company she runs with her co-authors.
