“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.” Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Welcome to Part One of our series celebrating some of the most influential women who have—sometimes against all odds— earned their position in some of the most important places where decisions are made: on the bench of some of the highest courts in our country.
Our inspiration for this series and our guest today on This is My Silver Lining is Lauren Rikleen. Lauren recently served as the Editor of Her Honor: Stories of Challenge and Triumph from Women on the Bench. Published by the American Bar Association, Her Honor is a collection of compelling personal narratives of the most revered judges in the United States (and one judge from Canada!). The book provides an amazingly unique and deeply instructive glimpse into our justice system.
Lauren is the founder and president of the Rikleen Institute for Strategic Leadership and the interim Executive Director of the non-partisan Lawyers Defending American Democracy. She is also a 2017 American Bar Association’s Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award recipient.
Lauren is a nationally recognized expert on developing a thriving, diverse and multi-generational workforce. Through her speaking, training, consulting, and writing, Lauren addresses such topics as strengthening multi-generational teams, women’s leadership and advancement, and implementing strategies to minimize the impact of unconscious bias.
