President's Message

Jennifer S. Romano
WLALA President 2014-2015

Thank you to everyone who attended and sponsored WLALA’s Installation Dinner on September 18, 2014. We heard from an inspiring group of awardees, including the Honorable Beverly Reid O’Connell, Karen Petrulakis of the University of California, and Judy Bain of Epson America, who showed us how their investment in other women lawyers and the community is helping to achieve WLALA’s mission. Our ballroom was at maximum capacity and our year got off to a great start. Thank you to Kay Burt and Lindsay Audette for all of your hard work in planning the event.

This month is National Work and Family Month. For many of us, every month seems to be work and family month, as we juggle our obligations in the legal profession as well as our personal obligations. For our members and our organization, we do not need an official month to talk about these issues – they are at the forefront of our minds and conversations throughout the year.

But, since this is the official month to talk about work and family, we have tried to focus on a few ways that our work and families intersect. First, WLALA will be hosting its annual “Pumpkins in the Park” event on October 19 at La Cienega Park in Beverly Hills. Members (and non-members) are invited with their children to decorate pumpkins, play at the park and network. It is a perfect way to multitask on a Sunday morning, while still having fun.
