Hollingsworth LLP sponsors 2019 Annual Dinner for Womenâ€™s Bar Association of D.C.
The Women's Bar Association (WBA) Annual Dinner is a signature event for the metropolitan legal community with nearly 600 attendees, including many of Washington’s top lawyers, judges, and business professionals.
This year, the WBA will honor Laurie Robinson Haden, Senior Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at CBS Corporation and the Founder and CEO of Corporate Counsel Women of Color. Ms. Robinson Haden created Corporate Counsel Women of Color in 2004 to advance women of color attorneys and to foster diversity in the legal profession. The non-profit professional organization has grown from 30 members to over 4,000 members within a 14-year period. Ms. Robinson Haden also spearheaded the 2011 groundbreaking research report on the career progression of women of color attorneys entitled “Perspectives of Women of Color Attorneys in Corporate Legal Departments.” This year's Annual Dinner is May 22, 2019 at the National Building Museum.
