Women Surviving and Thriving
|Lots of ladies, and a few men, came to the Palmer House Hilton for yesterday's Goldie Wolfe Miller Women Leaders in Real Estate luncheon on the post-recession real estate and finance law. We snapped Oxford Capital Group's Kerry O'Hare and Drinker Biddle?s Kathleen Cunningham, Krista Kron, Stephanie Shellenback, and Pamela Rovello before the meal. Kerry's company just finished the Hotel Felix, the city's first LEED-Silver hotel.|
Speakers: Katten Muchin Rosenman's Nina Matis, Sonnenschein's Linda B. White (who shows excellent judgment when it comes to picking which camera to look at), Millbrook Corporate Real Estate's Goldie Wolfe Miller, Sidley Austen's Virginia Aronson, and John Marshall Law School's Celeste Hammond. They spoke about the challenges and advantages of being a woman in law. Nina?s biggest advantage starting out: no one in Chicago could understand what she was saying in her New York accent.
