KPW Sponsors DirectWomen’s 2017 Sandra Day O’Connor Board Excellence Award Luncheon

The firm was a proud sponsor of DirectWomen’s 2017 Sandra Day O’Connor Board Excellence Award Luncheon in New York City on October 20, 2017.  Partners, Sarah Iiams and Michele DeShazo, attended on behalf of the firm and were happy to meet such accomplished ladies.  The mission of DirectWomen is to increase the representation of women on corporate boards through identifying leading women lawyers around the country who will improve corporate governance and increase shareholder value.

We are very pleased that ConocoPhillips Company’s Senior Vice President, Legal, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Janet Langford Carrig, was selected as a 2017 DirectWomen Board Institute participant for the October 19-20, 2017 program.  Each year, DirectWomen uses rigorous criteria to identify only the most talented women for the Board Institute training program.  Our firm has been fortunate to view Janet’s extraordinary talents firsthand through our work for ConocoPhillips.  Congratulations, Janet, on this well-deserved honor!
