Women's Leadership Initiative
Our Women’s Leadership Initiative is committed to fostering an environment that supports the professional advancement of women at Pullman & Comley, while also seeking to enrich the lives of women in our local communities. The many women in positions of prominence within the firm provide leadership and mentoring, and our Women’s Leadership Initiative programming creates opportunities for our attorneys to forge relationships and share information with a larger community of women.
Pullman & Comley’s Women’s Leadership Initiative is committed to:
- Advancing careers. For the firm’s women, we provide seminars, discussion programs and informal coaching, and we support the careers of women in our communities through our networking events and substantive discussion programs.
- Addressing concerns. Recent awareness-raising programs for clients and the public have addressed breast cancer, strategies for safeguarding and organizing personal documents and managing financial wealth.
- Supporting women at large. We actively support numerous women- and family-focused organizations in our communities as board members and sponsors.
