The Atlanta Lawyer June/July 2017 - Page 36

Chief Justice John Roberts appointed Judge Diehl to the judicial panel charged with reviewing financial disclosures required annually of federal judges. Judge Diehl has been a trustee of Canisius College, on the Board of Visitors at Emory (where she has taught bankruptcy in the law school), and was instrumental in establishing an endowed scholarship for women leaders at St. Mary’s College at Notre Dame. She environment has not changed radically since then. In her remarks Judge Diehl stated that we all possess the ability to bring about change. It just takes some thought. “If you want someone to write an article, ask a woman,” she proposed. “If you need someone to fill a leadership position, ask a woman. If you need speakers for presentations, ask women.” The Women in the Profession section is dedicated to fur- thering the practice and perception of law, with a focus on issues unique to women in the practice. Each year, WIP presents its “Outstanding Woman in the Profession” achievement award to an attorney in good standing who has made meaningful contributions in furthering the interests of women in the profession, and who is involved in activities which assist women in the metro Atlanta community.
