Three thoughts from Corrine Cooke, a top leader in the state.
Corrine Cooke is an attorney at the law firm of Stark & Stark in Lawrenceville. She is the chair of Stark & Stark’s “Women’s Initiative,” which focuses on the benefits of gender diversity within the firm while acknowledging and promoting the strengths that women attorneys bring to the field of law.
We asked Corrine for three key strategies to implement to encourage female empowerment in the workplace:
Recruit qualified women in all aspects of your business. Implement policies to encourage women applicants and maintain a positive work environment in all job roles in your company.
Help women advance their career goals. Provide support with marketing and networking. Create a robust mentoring program. Offer in-house career advancement programs.
Promote female leadership roles in legal, business and nonprofit communities. Engage in and encourage participation in professional associations and organizations that increase recognition of women — and your business — in the community.
