Vedder Thinking | News Vedder Price Celebrates International Women’s Day 2017
March 8, 2017
In honor of International Women’s Day, Vedder Price’s women’s initiative, WAVES, (Women at Vedder Empowering Success) joined the world in celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women by hosting a workshop and networking event featuring renowned motivational presenter, Jane DiRenzo Pigott, Esq.,who discussed “Effective Self Promotion: Developing a Personal Brand.”
The interactive workshop that was broadcast live to each Vedder Price office, identified gender differences that research demonstrates exist with regard to self promotion, and provided concrete suggestions on how women can become more effective advocates for themselves. Participants, who included Vedder Price women attorneys and clients, worked through real-life scenarios with the objective of leaving with distinct, applicable takeaways and a game plan on how to implement them.
WAVES is also proud to announce that this event kicked off the Vedder Price Women’s Charitable Donation Drive. Each office has partnered with a local charity that provides a wide range of services to women in need and will be collecting household items and toiletries throughout the month.
Jeanah Park, Shareholder and Co-Chair of WAVES, said, “Vedder Price is proud to participate in a global movement that celebrates women’s achievements and contributes to helping women in need.” Shareholder and Chair of the Vedder Price Diversity Committee Margo Wolf O’Donnell added, “The mission of WAVES is to support the firm’s women attorneys in developing the skills and strategies to be successful in their practices, at the firm and in the community, and Jane’s empowering presentation on self promotion enabled us to do just that.”
