Interview of the Month
An Interview with
by Susan Edwards Colson, Esq.
One of the best single professional decisions a lawyer can make is to join and become active in the Westchester Women’s Bar Association. After moving to Westchester in the early 2000’s I was trying to get established and therefore looking for a meaningful network. After several unrelated events and informal discussions, women who I admired suggested to me that I should “join the WWBA.” I took their suggestions to heart and joined. Their statements of encouragement have resulted in my involvement now for almost 20 years. Their viewpoint spread a message to me that joining was an important act and even an act of critical importance. As it has turned out, their encouragement to join the WWBA has brought me here to serve as president with a long history of prior service in various capacities and, importantly, many lasting friendships.continue »
