    Reminder - Submit Your Nomination for the MRWBA Woman of Achievement Award

    As our members know all too well, women lawyers often feel ‘invisible’ to firm, corporate and government leaders when it comes to being recognized for the work they do. To help us address this issue on a local level, each year the MRWBA Woman of Achievement Award recognizes a member who “exemplifies legal professionalism.” Our list of past honorees reads like a virtual Who’s Who of the Metro Richmond women's legal community, and we need your help to find the 2022 Woman of Achievement!

    All nominations are due no later than April 8th. Questions? E-mail Awards Chair Blaire Hawkins O’Brien
