Meet author, actress, and attorney Juanita Ingram! ✨Juanita serves as the Assistant General Counsel for Global Supply Chain and Operations for Allegion PLLC and is the author of several children and christian books. She has been named Top 40 under 40 and selected as one of Indiana's Up and Coming Lawyers. She is the founder and Board Chairman of Dress for Success Greater London @dfs_greaterlondon, which is a non-profit that assists women with becoming financially self-sufficient. ✨When asked what inspired her practice Juanita stated: "My inspiration to practice law has always been rooted in the desire to help others accomplish their goals. Being a transactions attorney enables me to do just that. I also firmly believe that we need more women in legal leadership roles within the corporate in-house sector. Serving as corporate counsel enables me to inform, influence, and empower my business partners to meet their goals and succeed in their undertakings. I am continuously inspired by the women that came before me that cracked at the glass ceilings that I am now soaring through. There is still a glass treehouse beyond that glass ceiling and it is up to each of us to do our part to help other women succeed." ✨Her biggest challenge as a woman in law? "Equity in pay and respect. We operate in what is still a very male dominated industry. I always find it strange that we are offered lower salaries than our male counterparts. I find it even more perplexing that some of our female colleagues encourage other women to just accept what they are given in terms of salary offers, as oppose to negotiating for what we deserve.
Her advice to other women in law? "Network and find a mentor. No one succeeds in a bubble. We all need support and guidance to get us to where we desire to be in life." READ MORE ABOUT ATTORNEY JUANITA & OTHER #womenincharge ON OUR FB PAGE! Link in Bio...
