Bowman and Brooke Associate attorney Jacqueline Peña was selected by Lawyers of Color (LoC) to be included in their inaugural Wonderful Women list, which recognizes dynamic women attorneys working in law firms, companies and government agencies across the U.S. who show promise in their careers and demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing diversity in the legal profession. Honorees will be profiled in the Hot List 2023 Issue. A free digital version is available on the Publications page of LoC’s website, see the full list of honorees here.
The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process. LoC’s selection committee, composed of the editorial staff, fellows and advisers, spent months reviewing nominations and researching legal publications in order to identify promising candidates. They accepted nominations from mentors, peers and colleagues, and also made editorial picks based on their research of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments, giving special attention to candidates who were active in diversity pipeline initiatives.
The honorees will be celebrated at two complimentary receptions hosted by Greenberg Traurig in its Washington, D.C. office on July 18, 2023 and its Atlanta office on July 19, 2023.
LoC is a 501c3 nonprofit devoted to promoting diversity in the legal profession and advancing democracy and equality in marginalized communities.
