Governor: Women in Leadership No Accident in NH

Gov. Maggie Hassan, keynote speaker at the NH Bar Association Gender Equality Committee’s breakfast at the Midyear Meeting on March 7, clearly seemed to enjoy spending time with her legal colleagues.

Hassan, only a few years removed from her occupation as a private practice lawyer, lauded the bar association’s emphasis on pro bono work and the work of the Gender Equality Committee.

Hassan also celebrated the prominence of women in leadership roles in New Hampshire. “New Hampshire has had a strong tradition of volunteerism – our large Legislature provides a venue for volunteerism, and that is perhaps why women in leadership is more of a norm here,” said Hassan. But, she added, there is still work to be done.

She noted with approval the work of the Gender Equality Committee on practical initiatives, including its periodic surveys of the role of women in the legal profession, and last year’s training series on pay equity and other issues. (The committee continues its training initiative with an April 9 program, “Get Paid What You’re Worth,” featuring Lauren Rikleen. Learn more.)

The breakfast also featured the presentation of the Philip Hollman Gender Equality Award to Heather Krans (pictured above with Hassan) recognizing her leadership, mentoring and accomplished career.
