MIAMI, FL—Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, P.A. gathered more than 125 women leaders and attorneys during the firm’s 2023 Women’s Business Forum for a day of empowering discussions on key issues impacting women in business and the many contributions of working women. With a theme of “Lift Women. Lift Humanity,” the Sept. 29 event at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort also featured an interactive session with Girls Inc. that focused on encouraging elementary school girls to strive for success.
Caroline O’Connor, president of business operations for the Miami Marlins, was recognized with the Diana P. Scott Integrity in Action Award, dedicated in memory of former Greenberg Traurig Shareholder Diana P. Scott, an early leader in the firm’s Women’s Initiative. After the award was presented by Nikki Lewis Simon, senior vice president and Greenberg Traurig’s chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion officer, O’Connor sat down for a fireside chat with McClatchy Vice President Monica Richardson to discuss her career and community impact.
The program also included a mentoring opportunity for girls from underserved communities. During an interactive workshop with Girls, Inc. of Greater Miami, about 50 elementary school-aged girls joined the attendees to decorate puzzle pieces about notable women in history. Led by Virginia Akar, founding CEO of Girls Inc. of Greater Miami, the activity included table discussions focused on overcoming challenges and the impacts that these notable women had on society.
