As a wealth advisor at Bernstein, my job is to provide my clients with sound advice and a healthy perspective. While most of that advice is around financial planning, I strive to be a source of perspective on a number of different fronts. It was in this spirit that I created the series, Leading the Way, to highlight successful women across a variety of fields. Each month, I feature one incredible woman and explore her accomplishments, industry perspective, best practices, and lessons learned.
My first interview was with Hilarie Bass, Founder and President of the Bass Institute for Diversity and Inclusion. Hilarie was Co-President of Greenberg Traurig, a global law firm, she was President of the American Bar Association and Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the University of Miami. Today, Hilarie speaks to companies around the world about the importance of keeping women in the workforce.
During our interview, she spoke to me about her decision to leave the practice of law to advocate for women around the world, the best practices for diversity and inclusion, unconscious biases in the workplace, and how companies can improve the retention and elevation of women into senior management positions.
I'm thrilled to share with you my four-part interview with the dynamic Hilarie Bass.
