Partner Christian Torgrimson spoke on a panel of women attorneys at the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers (GAWL) 2017 CLE event, The Leader Within Seminar on Feb. 14 in Atlanta. Torgrimson joined Cristina Leon, Alicia Graham Jones, Karyl Davis and Lisa Simpson Hoover to discuss factors impacting the underrepresented leadership roles for women in law — and how to bring change. GAWL helped sponsor the study, which has measured and documented the issues affecting women lawyers in the Atlanta community. GAWL plans to publish the results of the study soon.
