To me, stronger together means . . . we cannot go through life alone and our professional lives are no different!  When we have supportive colleagues, employers, partners (in the office and at home), and friends, we are stronger together. I’m a member of the following professional organizations, which have demonstrated to me that there is strength in numbers . . .   The Bar Association of San Francisco - When I moved to SF from Northwestern Law, I had a small group of classmates and friends in the city.  BASF has helped me make numerous professional contacts plus I’ve…

Why Ms. JD is Celebrating Men - Ms. JD’s TIM Initiative (#TIMInitiative)

Like many new projects, Ms. JD's TIM Initiative began in a small way.  (Is it weird that I'm envisioning GE's Ideas Commercial as I write this?)  The first…
