Zelle Hofmann’s “Zealous Women” Launch New Web SiteOctober 15, 2009
Zelle Hofmann and its “Zealous Women” announce the launch of www.zealouswomen.com, a Web site focused on female attorneys and women in dispute resolution.
The brainchild of a lively discussion during the Firm’s 20th Anniversary Retreat, Zelle Hofmann’s female lawyers banded together to create a place where like-minded women—at Zelle Hofmann and elsewhere—can explore unique approaches to dispute resolution through articles, profiles, message boards, and other resources.
“Women are many things – professionals, wives, mothers, friends, sisters, and daughters,” said Zelle Hofmann Partner and Zealous Woman, Patricia St. Peter. “The site’s goal is to provide a forum where all women who resolve disputes on a daily basis, in both their professional and personal lives, can celebrate their successes and consider the complexities of trying to find that work/life balance.”
Zealouswomen.com includes news, events, and spotlights highlighting women in the legal industry. To support the site’s interactive approach, zealouswomen.com actively solicits additions and comments from its visitors.
As Catherine Colinvaux, another Zelle Hofmann Partner and the Firm’s Diversity Coordinator explained, “Our law firm is far-flung and it feels like we are always on the road. Add to that our busy lives, and it can be hard for the firm’s women to get together. The web provides a marvelous ‘space’ for us to gather. Even better, it allows us to reach out to the larger community of women whose interests and achievements are like ours.”
