The Finn Dixon & Herling Women’s Initiative Network

provides a community for attorneys to establish mentoring relationships, develop skills, network with clients, and find connection. For the firm, WIN advances the critical goals of recruiting, retaining, and promoting female attorneys.

WIN maintains a balance between professional and social activities.

The group conducts regular meetings open to all women at the firm, where participants have engaged in goal-setting and other professional development exercises. WIN also hosts events that have ranged from our networking-oriented women’s golf clinic to a 16-course omakase dinner.

Our place in private equity and venture capital—industries in which women have historically lacked representation—makes it still more imperative, and more valuable, for FDH to provide a resource like WIN. We regularly invite female clients and professional contacts to our events, providing a welcome sense of community for all.

The benefits of WIN are not exclusive to the women of Finn Dixon & Herling.

Repeatedly, initiatives begun inside the group have benefitted the entire firm. Discussions that started at WIN gatherings have led to a revisitation of the firm’s parental leave policy, pre-Covid consideration of flexible working arrangements, and an increase in firm events geared toward parents, caregivers, and families.
