Jill Steinberg Discusses Women in the Legal Profession with the Memphis Daily News


In a Memphis Daily News article on women in business, Jill Steinberg, the first leader of Baker Donelson's Women's Initiative, discusses the challenges faced by women in the legal profession. "In the last few years the legal world, I think, sort of patted itself on the back and thought we’d really broken through the glass ceiling," Ms. Steinberg said. "But you’re beginning to see again published articles nationally about women lagging behind in compensation and becoming equity partners and in being tagged as leaders in their law firms." Ms. Steinberg noted that the Firm's Women's Initiative carries out programs unique to its specific offices to help develop women into leaders: "The Nashville office might do a wine and chocolate tasting to allow people to network with other women business leaders and women clients. The Memphis office has (participated in the) Viking Cooking School. And we invited our women clients to that event. New Orleans has their own program. Each office has a budget and their own committees to develop programs that are helpful and specific to their office."
