The firm’s Women’s Initiative (WIN) began several years ago as an informal mentoring opportunity and quickly developed into a formal program. Today, WIN aims to assist our women attorneys and other professionals as they strive to achieve a work/life balance without sacrificing opportunities for advancement and career growth.
WIN regularly sponsors programs designed to bring the firm’s women together to discuss career development and advancement issues, and often invites other female professionals and business owners to speak on a variety of topics. In addition, WIN hosts networking receptions to provide professionals with an opportunity to develop new business contacts and outlets.
All women attorneys and professionals at Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi are members of the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association, giving the firm the distinction of having the largest membership of any law firm in the state.
Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi’s Diversity and Women’s Initiatives are also heavily involved in community outreach sponsorship. Through our initiatives, Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi has arranged firm-wide fundraisers for numerous local organizations, including those that provide health and social services to children in need, and we support programs that assist the elderly and members of the United States military fighting abroad.
