RK&O partner Shari Brandt has been selected as one of Diversity Journal's Women Worth Watching for 2018. Each year, the publication awards this honor to 100 exemplary women in leadership positions across a range of industries in North America and Europe. The recipients are nominated by their colleagues and peers and represent diversity within their spheres of influence
In her profile, Ms. Brandt discussed the positive changes she has seen in the industry, including the new New York Bar diversity and inclusion CLE requirements and SDNY rules that offer more opportunity for oral argument on the case if clients put forth junior attorneys. She also offered advice to younger attorneys, and encouraged them to speak up thoughtfully and to participate meaningfully in discussions to stand out from the crowd. “We all need to keep striving for that next opportunity,” Ms. Brandt said.
