March 17, 2014 First Women’s Forum Formalizes Long-time Efforts Helping Women Lawyers Develop their Careers

The first official meeting of the firm’s Women’s Forum was held on this day in 2002. Its stated mission was to “foster opportunities for professional, social and personal growth for our women attorneys, communicate the firm’s strong commitment to the success of its women attorneys and enhance the visibility and recognition of Jenner & Block’s leadership in support of women in the legal profession.”  Susan Levy was the first official chair, and its first steering committee consisted of Susan, Debbie Berman, Lynn Grayson, Linda Listrom, Lorie Masters and Barb Steiner.  The Women's Forum is a formalized effort of what pioneering partner Joan Hall had begun years before, and it continues today.
