Gender Equality Breakfast

Joni Esperian

Justice Hantz Marconi

Judge Nancy Gertner

The breakfast has become a must-attend event for attorneys working in all areas of the law and in various practice settings, as a way to connect with colleagues and support the work of the Gender Equality Committee.

Established on the occasion of Judge Hollman's retirement from the Superior Court bench in 2003, the Gender Equality award is designed to honor Judge Hollman's efforts in advocating for gender equality in the NH legal system.

This year's recipient, Joni Esperian, is the Executive Director of the NH Commission for Human Rights in Concord. Prior to holding this position, she worked as a trial lawyer in state and federal courts. A cum laude graduate of Stony Brook University, she earned her law degree from the UNH Law Center. Volunteering her time to improve practice is a way of life for Esperian. She has given talks to the New Lawyers Committee on how to bring cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and has written for the NH Bar News on Best Practices for bringing complaints before the NH Human Rights Commission. She has also volunteered in high schools for the Bar Association's annual Law Day and has been on the Pro Bono Honor Roll countless times. She was a founding member of the NH Women's Bar Association and has served as its president. In addition, she was awarded the Excellence in Service Award by the Manchester NAACP Chapter in 2013.

NH Supreme Court Justice Bobbie Hantz Marconi is the guest speaker. Additional remarks will be provided by Judge Nancy Gertner.

The cost to attend this year's Gender Equality Breakfast is only $15! Register online.
