The DRI Women in the Law Committee featured Karen Karabinos as the September 2019 “WITL Champion”. Karen, who is heavily involved in a number of committees both within DEF and outside of the firm, holds several leadership positions and utilizes these positions to help others. In this interview, Karen explains why she takes time from her legal career to contribute in various programs to support woman attorneys advancing in their careers and accomplishing their goals.
“These roles have made me very visible in the firm and provide me with the unique opportunity to champion women by mentoring, marketing, advancing and planning the future for women attorneys in our firm. I am also vocal within out Women Lawyers group about being available to associates and try to create an open-door policy that makes people feel like I am approachable.”
