Greenberg Traurig Women's Intitiative
Greenberg Traurig is a uniquely empowering and diverse firm where individuals are respected and have the opportunity to contribute, develop leadership skills, and grow their business. The Greenberg Traurig Women’s Initiative (GTWI) reflects these principles and supports the inclusion and advancement of women in the legal profession through unique programming and resources designed to benefit the firm’s attorneys, their clients, and future lawyers.
From its inception, the firm has been dedicated to the advancement of women attorneys. The GTWI affinity group helps foster the success of women attorneys, strengthen the firm’s culture, contributes to the firm’s financial health, and better serves firm clients.
Liaisons serve from every office and help make GTWI relevant to the attorneys and clients of their specific office or market. An Advisory Group includes senior men and women attorneys who advise GTWI. The group plays a critical role in providing support at every level of the firm.
GTWI supports the recruitment, retention, and promotion of women attorneys at the firm. Greenberg Traurig’s women attorneys are senior and key leaders of some of the firm’s largest practices as well as a co-president, a vice president, as two of the firm’s regional operating shareholders, and as four of the firm’s executive committee members. Many of the firm’s women attorneys are also recognized for their individual areas of expertise. Exemplifying its commitment through GTWI, the firm takes thoughtful action to address such issues important to our attorneys and community.
