Aamna Jalal – Televerde

Social progress notwithstanding, women at all levels in business face workplace obstacles largely spared to men. These obstacles increase for women with criminal backgrounds. So says Aamna Jalal who, since January, has been working with and providing support to women in prison through Televerde, a global inside sales and demand generation company based in Phoenix […]

Alexander (Alex) Aviles – Consolidated Edison Company of New York Inc. (Con Edison)

Alex Aviles remembers the night when a bullet shattered his apartment window, whizzed by him, and lodged in the ceiling. Nobody was hurt, but it was a telltale sign times were changing in his neighborhood—and time for his family to leave. A second-year law student at the time, Aviles grew up in The Bronx, the […]

Ana Cristina Flores Peña – Absormex CMPC Tissue

An in-house role, ideally a general counselship, had long been among Ana Cristina Flores Peña’s professional goals. Only she thought it could wait until later in her career, like perhaps when she was in her mid-30s. She wouldn’t have to wait that long, for in 2017 the opportunity presented itself at the Mexican division of […]

Anthony D. Foti – Foot Locker, Inc.

Over time, companies have increasingly responded to a rallying cry—fueled by social media—to address social issues, says Anthony D. Foti. “Shareholders are demanding that companies not only deliver against financial performance metrics, but also that they serve and promote a social purpose,” Foti says. “Management needs to set the narrative and convince shareholders to support […]

Antoinette Currie – Global Contact Services

It’s a simple, almost quaint, notion in an age of email barrages, obsessive phone checking and video and teleconferencing: face to face interaction. Yet Antoinette Currie makes a point to do this every day with her staff—and the general counsel and vice president of human resources for Global Contact Services, in turn, has the opportunity […]

Araceli Enriquez – Takeda

When the Doctor Vagón health train started rolling into marginalized villages across the Mexican countryside this year, the medical team aboard was delivering a message of hope and information to hundreds of people suffering from one of the country’s biggest killers: diabetes. The Vagón train and a cancer patient assistance program to help those who […]

Brandee Winikoff – Rodan + Fields

Scrolling through the company’s website, the wares that make up Rodan + Fields’ product line—everything from serums and acne lines to anti-aging products and masks—look like any you might find at a high-end department store. The branding is straightforward, too: streamlined, simple, unabashedly confident. They certainly don’t seem like the kinds of products that would […]

Charlotte Tart – Intelligent Medical Objects Inc.

As a hobbyist photographer, Charlotte Tart has a keen eye for knowing when things are out of focus—and a knack for bringing them back. In other words: an ideal skill for any modern general counsel, one that quickly came in handy when she joined Chicago area-based health care IT company Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO) in […]

Chris Young — Bentham IMF

In years past, a small company with valuable litigation claims may not have had the financial wherewithal to navigate the unpredictability and cost of commercial litigation—even if their claims had merit. The alternative might have been to settle for pennies on the dollar, bleed its legal fund dry or simply not proceed with its case. […]

Craig Levine – WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems

Doing laundry is one of life’s necessities. Carrying a handful of quarters around with you—not so much. Online mobile payment apps are helping to change the status quo by eliminating the need for credit and debit cards, in turn making handfuls of quarters (for laundry at least) a thing of the past. Craig Levine is […]
