One of the best things HWL does every year is recognize the women (and, sometimes, the men) in our community who are doing important work that help to advance HWL’s mission - to improve the lives and careers of women in all aspects of the legal community, influence the future of the legal profession, and/or enhance the status of women and promote equal opportunities for all people. So often, those who do the most are so busy working that they do not take the time to recognize what they have done, much less expect to be recognized by others for what they are doing. It is a joy to stand in a room full of HWL members every year and tell our award winners how much we appreciate their hard work.
HWL is soliciting nominations for its 2010 Annual Awards to be presented in early 2011. Nominations must be made in writing and can be sent via U.S. Mail to Hawaii Women Lawyers, P.O. Box 2072, Honolulu, Hawaii 96805 or via email to Shellie Park-Hoapili at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations must be received by the end of business on Friday, December 10, 2010.
