    Welcome to Fall - Magistrate Amy Koorn and Yukiko Yee

    At home, fall means football, apple cider, cooler nights and school buses.  At the OWBA, it means CLE, Diversity & Inclusion, networking and supporting Dress for Success!  We hope your home and work routines are settling down, and you commit to your career and professional advancement in some meaningful and strategic way.

    Looking ahead for opportunities to build your experience and exposure – the OWBA GS will present a collaborative Professionalism Credit CLE on November 9, 2016 in partnership with the private sector.  Ice Miller and OWBA member Mimi Geswein will host our members and panelists in what is shaping up to be a thought provoking, exciting and helpful program designed to bring our members together and heighten our understanding in the areas that challenge us. 

    Our first panel topics include: implicit bias, racial/cultural/gender differences and their impact on communication/leadership styles; the importance of cultural awareness/sensitivity; as well as training, education, policy, and hiring practices aimed at bringing diverse employees to an inclusive workplace.  Next, those in attendance will hear how GS has consistently worked to banish the notion that Private & Public Sector attorneys have nothing to gain from each other.  To evidence the value of partnerships you will hear from women who have made the transition and what the move did for their careers and their families’ lives.  Finally, the final hour will address emotional health and wellbeing for lawyers.  We hope you join us!

    Looking in the rear view mirror, GS is pleased to report the success of our first philanthropic professional event conducted at Dress for Success Columbus (DFSC). With your help, we collected over 1200+ items including professional clothing, shoes, jewelry and make up for women returning to the work place. We additionally presented Dress for Success with new accessories to outfit its boutique, and a contribution check for the proceeds raised at our DFSC Charity Happy Hour with Stella & Dot. Through this unique giveback event, we were able to grow our careers and build relationships while also supporting an integral community outreach.  If you were not able to attend, we encourage you to take a minute to learn about the mission of Dress for Success at https://columbus.dressforsuccess.org/The synergy between the OWBA and DFS is undeniable! 



    In closing, whatever your fall calendar holds, we hope November 9th is reserved for the OWBA GS sponsored CLE.  For a very low cost you are promised a high impact conversation among your peers that will be led by our finest, most respected speakers and leaders in the legal community.  We are looking forward to seeing you there!
