Ohio & Kentucky Super Lawyers® 2021

Porter Wright's Joyce Edelman was interviewed for the article, "A seat at the table: Columbus and Cleveland firms are working to level the playing field for women," which was published in the 2021 issue of Ohio & Kentucky Super Lawyers®. The article focuses on strides for women made in the legal industry, including by in the group "Gender Equity in the Legal Industry (GELI)", in which Porter Wright is a founding member.

Now a partner and chair of the life science practice group at Porter Wright Morris & Arthur in Columbus, [Joyce] Edelman heads her firm’s Women’s Leadership Initiative and is on the steering committee of an innovative advocacy group called Gender Equity in the Legal Industry, or GELI (pronounced “jelly”).

“Historically, women in the profession have had to work much, much harder to prove their worth,” says Edelman. “And prove that they deserve to have a voice and a seat at the table.”
