Celebrating International Women’s Day:

International Women’s Day was adopted by the United Nations in 1977, dedicating March 8 to celebrate the work women do every day to make this world better. It is a time to honor the strong female role models in our lives, including my fellow Commissioners Christine Moore, Mayra Uribe, Maribel Gomez Cordero, Emily Bonilla, and Victoria Siplin. Reflecting on my legal mentors such as Chief Judge Lisa Munyon and Judge Alice L. Blackwell, I am grateful to have had these incredible role models in my life and to work towards setting an example of equal opportunity and diversity.
