The Coalition of Women’s Initiative in Law has selected Laura Lazarczyk, Sr. Assistant General Counsel for Zurich in North America as its Inspiration Award recipient for 2013.

Lazarczyk was recognized as an inspiration to other female attorneys while also demonstrating excellence in legal practice, advocating for gender parity in the legal profession, encouraging the full talents, skills, and rights of women, and encouraging women to accept opportunities and challenges to expand their circle of influence, Zurich said.

“Receiving this award is a great honor,” said Lazarczyk. “I fully support efforts to foster gender parity in the legal profession — and elsewhere — and I hope this recognition encourages other attorneys to share their time and talents to facilitate opportunities for more women to succeed in the legal profession.” ?

Lazarczyk will formally be recognized at the association’s Fourth Annual Leadership Forum in Chicago on October 28. The Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law’s Forum is designed to stimulate thought, promote dialogue and propose workable solutions to improve gender diversity in law firm leadership and the legal profession.
