About the Women’s Initiative

At Rubin and Rudman LLP, we are dedicated to actively recruiting, retaining, and advancing talented women attorneys.

The Women’s Initiative aims to:

  • Identify and support professional and business development opportunities for women attorneys;
  • Increase leadership roles for women attorneys at the firm and in the industries and communities we serve;
  • Foster connections, cross-selling and collaboration; and
  • Address issues that disproportionally affect women.

Some of the organizations we have collaborated with include The Massachusetts Women’s Bar Association, Wonderfund of Massachusetts, Rosie’s Place, The Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association, the Ron Burton Training Village and its STEM program for under-served young women, the Supreme Judicial Court Standing Committee on Lawyer Well-Being, The Justice Resource Institute, and many other charitable associations. The firm also sponsors a wide range of events that recognize our female attorneys and their contributions to the legal field, such as MLW’s “Top Women of Law” event.

Boston, MA (March 1, 2024) – What an amazing way to kick off Women’s History Month! Members of Rubin and Rudman LLP’s Women’s Group came out this morning to support The Wonderfund’s 2nd Annual Period Party – a feminine hygiene drive, giving girls and women involved with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) access to feminine hygiene products.

More than 250 women were on hand this morning at Big Night Live on Causeway. The music was blaring and the energy was flowing. In all, more than 10,000 period kits were sorted and packaged, bringing hope, dignity, and comfort to girls across the Commonwealth this year!
