Shaping the River

Posted By Elvira Cortez: A President's Perspective, Thursday, October 24, 2019
Updated: Thursday, October 24, 2019

At our leadership luncheon, panelist Andrea Guerrero explained that women attorneys have the power to “shape the river” or use their tools of advocacy to effect change in laws and policy to better society. Another way to shape the river is to ensure that the pipeline for women attorneys remains strong by inspiring the next generation.


Our Halloween Read-In is a great opportunity to reach out to young girls from underserved communities who have never met a women attorney. Studies have shown that early contact with professionals can have a positive influence on students, and female students in particular. In this way, female students can imagine themselves as professionals. This is where shaping the river needs to begin so that there will be women in the future to advocate for women’s rights.


This year our read-in will be at Central Elementary School. Central Elementary School is a year-round school serving Pre-K through fifth grade, which serves some of the poorest children in San Diego. Please JOIN US at the read-in. If you are unable to attend the read-in, please consider donating supplies listed on Central Elementary’s Wish List.

 

Elvira Cortez practices business and commercial litigation and employment defense at Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP and is the 2019-2020 president of Lawyers Club.
