Fox Rothschild to Be Honored at CCFWG’s Champions of Change Breakfast
The Chester County Fund for Women and Girls will host its first annual Champions of Change Breakfast on March 1 at The Farmhouse Bistro at People’s Light in Malvern.
The event will honor Patricia Miller, President of Nobel Learning Communities, for her longstanding dedication to the advancement of women in the workplace. Fox Rothschild will also be honored for its firm-wide commitment to mentorship and career development for female attorneys.
Miller will receive the Gladys Black Woman of Distinction Award, named in memory of CCFWG’s late friend and committed board member Gladys Black. In her role at Nobel, Miller has tirelessly advocated for female employees and serves as a mentor to many of them. She has worked for more than 35 years with the Forum for Executive Women, helping to promote women to boards and leadership positions throughout the business world.
“Patty goes toe-to-toe with her male colleagues without ever forgetting the women who are the backbone of Nobel Learning Communities,” said Cate Sennett, a CCFWG Board Member. “She is a passionate supporter of many charities and serves as a role model for those of us who have been mentored, befriended, and supported by her.
“Patty has also served on discussion panels, encouraging women to become leaders, and lives what she preaches in her daily work.”
As an advocate for its female employees, Fox Rothschild encourages women to become equity partners and hold leadership roles. Its Women’s Initiative brings in female leaders to share tips on how to best advocate for oneself during review and compensation processes. Female employees pursuing partnership tracks are paired with mentors to guide them in the process.
As a further testament to Fox Rothschild’s support of women, a significant percentage of leadership roles, including the firm’s executive committee, are held by women.
“We cannot take for granted individuals and companies who are paving the way for the professional and personal growth of women,” said CCFWG Executive Director Michelle Legaspi Sanchez. “CCFWG is proud to highlight the dedication of Patricia Miller, as well as Fox Rothschild. Because of their leadership and courage, many Chester County women have more opportunities to move forward.”
