Dinsmore champions women’s rights and initiatives across all industries, and is proud to celebrate International Women’s Day and the unmatched mark of women in all areas of society. We want to introduce you to some of the women, both attorneys and staff, who help make up the fabric of the firm and contribute to help us accomplish more. Each of them has given their thoughts on the significant impact of women at Dinsmore and in society, as we look to a future of creating a more inclusive culture.
Meet Rachel Brown, Office Services Clerk
As a female employee, how do you view our inclusive culture?
Since starting at the firm, I think everyone has been extremely friendly and welcoming. I’ve already been given opportunities to learn new things and expand my skill set. I’ve found the firm to be open to hearing your thoughts and goals and providing you with the tools to get you to that point.
In your prior experience and experience at the firm so far, do you feel there are any significant challenges still for women?
I feel, as the years go by, women are far exceeding and excelling in ways we perhaps felt were unreachable before. Since starting here, I’ve been impressed with the number of women I see in management, and at the end of the day, hard work is really what matters.
What do you like to do for fun?
I really enjoy animals, and I managed an animal shelter for five years. I have one dog, and I like to do a lot of outdoor activities.
