Ida is an accomplished expert focusing on the professional development of legal talent in law firms. She partnered with me at my previous firm to launch a more robust associate mentoring program. Ida stays abreast of the many changes and challenges in the legal workplace and shares her thoughts and findings willingly with others. In addition, Ida should be commended for the many contributions she has made to the advancement of women in the legal profession.
