Sanyal Featured in Columbus Dispatch Story Titled “Meet the YWCA Columbus Women on the Rise”

Anna Sanyal, an associate in the Vorys Columbus office, was featured in a Columbus Dispatch story about the 2023 YWCA Columbus “Women on the Rise.”  Sanyal and five other women were selected for this honor.  According to the story, the “Women on the Rise” award is in its fourth year and is given to young women making an impact in the community.

The story states:

As a child, Sanyal, an associate attorney at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP, was fascinated by law, but never saw judges or lawyers — real or in the media — who looked like her. She wanted to break the mold, a feat she is accomplishing as a mentor and promoter of diverse lawyers and women in general.

For her, being named a Woman on the Rise is homage to her foremothers.

‘I am the descendant of a long line of South Asian women who did not have the privilege and means to have a career, make decisions about reproductive health, and chart their own path in the world,’ she said. ‘Being a Woman on the Rise feels like a recognition and celebration of their sacrifices. I’m proud to be Aloka’s daughter and Anima and Ashalamata’s granddaughter.’”
