Wendy Cohen, co-chair of the firm's New York Financial Services practice, was interviewed by Glasshammer for their "Voice of Experience" series, discussing the importance of women advocating for themselves and knowing their value. "You have to ask for what you want and recognize what your contribution is; then refuse to feel diminished, intimidated or not as worthy as your male counterparts just because you may have different demands on your time and elements of your life to balance," she said. Wendy speaks from experience, as the article outlines her rise to becoming a partner, while choosing to temporarily downshift to a part-time schedule to raise her family.
"My path should not be anomalous; it should be available to all women who choose to downshift, without being viewed as less successful, committed or capable," she stated. Wendy is active in Katten's Women's Leadership Forum, adding, "The firm is very committed to diversity, and expends a great deal of energy and time nurturing women," acknowledging that the firm is Mansfield Certified for excellence in diversity.
