At a private reception in her chambers, Chief Judge Loretta Preska (S.D.N.Y.) hosted fellow members of the New York branch of the International Women’s Forum. Having arrived with a suitcase at her door, the uniquely touching Loretta later sent me off to my flight for Madrid with a doggie bag in hand.
All be it a short visit, Loretta’s words of wisdom and genuine embrace of her new “sorority”, reminded me of why women committed to leadership in their fields are so at home in this group. As Alair Townsend, the former publisher of Crain’s Business once told me, “The best reason to be part of the Women’s Forum of New York (and the International Women’s Forum) is because it is a great group of women.” Greater today for Loretta’s inclusion in its ranks.
