Washington Women Lawyers is seeking nominations for individuals to receive two very special awards at our upcoming Annual Event this October:
Passing the Torch Award. Intended to recognize an individual who has gone above and beyond with regard to mentoring women lawyers, making a difference, and “passing the torch” to others in a way that supports the WWL mission of furthering the full integration of women in the legal profession, promoting equal rights and opportunities for women, and preventing discrimination against them.
Legacy Award. Created in 2009 to memorialize the inspiring personal and professional legacies within the organization, such as the legacies of founding and key sustaining members, so that current and former members can understand, honor and build upon that progress.
This is a golden opportunity for you to show a fellow member that you’ve noticed their contributions and believe them worthy of special WWL recognition!
To nominate someone for an award, please fill out the appropriate form and return it to Jessica Kerr at firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, August 10, 2019. A list of past award recipients is included with the nomination forms and can also be found on the WWL website.
Thank you, and we look forward to spending time with you at the Annual Event on October 11, 2019!
