The Women’s Venture Fund has honored my colleague Laxmi Wordham today with its 2009 Highest Leaf Award. This annual award recognizes trailblazing women business executives who have shown outstanding leadership and commitment to their respective industries and to other women.
Laxmi is being honored for her vision and leadership in transforming Martindale-Hubbell to meet the needs of today’s corporate counsel and law firm lawyers. What I truly admire about Laxmi is her commitment to supporting and driving diversity thru an organization. She walks the talk, but never forgets the needs of the business. Laxmi has been integral to the success we’ve had with Martindale-Hubbell Connected, and it is gratifying to see her (and in some ways Martindale-Hubbell) recognized!
