The National Law Journal on Aug. 11 presented the Carolinas Legal Departments of the Year, which highlighted in-house teams at companies in North Carolina and South Carolina. We spotlighted corporate counsel who are making a positive difference in the law, at their companies and in their communities.

Since then, we’ve dug deeper to explore the work of Carolina women in the law. With “Two Steps Forward,” we feature people who have strived to advance the careers of women in corporate law and the legal profession in general — a persistent, formidable challenge. At Fortune 500 companies in 2013, women made up about 22 percent of general counsel and about 15 percent of equity partners in private practice, although they total more than 47 percent of law school graduating classes, according to the American Bar Association.
