Shearman & Sterling hosted a group of senior women from banks and corporates for a lively "salon"-style dinner discussion at Marea in New York on October 12, 2017.
Ambassador Wendy Sherman, the former Under Secretary for Political Affairs for the U.S. Department of State and a Founding Partner and current Senior Counselor of the Albright Stonebridge Group, gave a stimulating and behind-the-curtain keynote address of the issues facing the global community today. Partner Donna Parisi, who coordinated the event, introduced Ambassador Sherman and gave a brief overview of Shearman & Sterling’s commitment to the professional development of talented women throughout our firm and community.
This event provided a platform for accomplished women across industries to come together to participate in an evening of engaging discussion, networking and professional development.
“It was a terrific event,” said the General Counsel of a large private equity firm who attended the dinner. “Wendy's speech was thought-provoking, and the group discussion was lively and informed. I am glad that I had the opportunity to join the dinner.”
