Lauren Stiller Rikleen Nominated to ABA Board of Governors

Last month, during the ABA's Midyear Meeting in Los Angeles, Massachusetts lawyer Lauren Stiller Rikleen was nominated to serve as a member of the ABA's Board of Governors. The election will be held in August by the policy-making ABA House of Delegates, when it meets at the 2008 ABA Annual Meeting in New York City. If elected, Rikleen will serve as a woman member-at-large, and will be one of 40 representatives who oversee the administration and management of the ABA.

Rikleen is at the forefront of the movement to improve the advancement of women attorneys in the legal profession. To that end, she serves as Executive Director of the Bowditch Institute for Women's Success, which helps law firms create work environments that foster a culture of success for women attorneys.

Rikleen will be presenting a JD Bliss webinar on the Top 5 Attorney Retention Strategies on Wednesday, May 7, 2008. Click here for further details and to register.

Rikleen is the author of Ending the Gauntlet, which analyzes the institutional impediments to women’s success in the practice of law, and details the challenges and roadblocks which underlie the high rates of attrition and low rates of partnership elevation for women lawyers.
