City & State New York and The Amsterdam News featured Jenner & Block Partner Dawn Smalls in their “Power Players” edition, with a focus on Black women in government and politics. In the profile, Ms. Smalls reflects on her 2019 campaign for New York City public advocate. The fact that she is a Black woman, she observes, “was one of the core arguments for my candidacy. A city as large and diverse as NYC should not be led by all white men.” Ms. Smalls also discusses mentors in her career, challenges she faced as a young woman lawyer, and methods for relieving stress.
