Ashleigh Lynn says helping women feel seen and appreciated aids in motivating them to accomplish their goals.
The commercial litigation attorney has co-led the firm’s women’s affinity group in its Baltimore and New York offices, creating an equity-based policy. In her role, she conducts educational seminars, moderates candid discussions, and advocates for women at the firm.
What do you think is the No. 1 challenge working women face?
She said women face conflicting expectations at home and in the workplace. “However, as we have seen, publicly acknowledging these inequitable expectations is the first step to stripping them of their power and thus dismantling the very systems that hold women back,” Lynn wrote.
Lynn is a founding committee member of the Survivor Initiative’s Washington chapter which supports Holocaust survivors living below the national poverty line, and has volunteered for eight years with Generation Hope, a local organization that supports teen parents, offering opportunities to succeed.
“Mentorship has long been close to my heart and is one of the many reasons I chose to devote my time, treasure and talent to a mentorship-focused organization like Generation Hope.”
Lynn earned her law degree from Boston University School of Law. She is a member of the bar in Maryland, Washington and New York.
