Claudia Lewis was recognized by Profiles in Diversity Journal as a 2018 recipient of its Women Worth Watching Awards, which celebrates the achievements of women who have led new business units, created new markets, launched new ventures, and helped develop the next generation of women leaders. Here is an excerpt from a profile article that was published in the summer edition of the magazine:
Ms. Lewis noted: When I can, I provide other women coming through the ranks with insight into what I have learned along the way. It is an honor to be where I am today, and I do my best to share it by mentoring all young attorneys, particularly African American women. Unfortunately, it is not unusual for me to be the only minority and/or woman in a meeting. I use these experiences to provide the next generation with this advice: Understand that there are stereotypes, learn your craft well, and be confident of your own capabilities.
