Stevens Featured in Columbus CEO Story About Vorys’ Initiative for Business Empowerment

Attorneys & Professionals

Janay Stevens, an associate in the Vorys Columbus office and a member of the labor and employment group, was quoted throughout a Columbus CEO article about the launch of the Vorys Initiative for Business Empowerment.

The story states:

“‘One of the things that a number of businesses have pointed out is that even though they might have been in operation for a year, five years, 15 years, 20 years, in some cases, they don’t necessarily have contracts in place for the exchange of their services, whatever those might be,’ Stevens says. ‘They’re oftentimes emails, or handshake-type agreements. We see that as an opportunity to put pen to paper and help you protect your interests.’

Program participants are able to access Vorys’ suite of services offered to all clients, such as exclusive webinars.

The commitment to making social change has to go beyond platitudes, Stevens says.

‘We have to make this more than just a moment in time,’ she says. ‘To make true systemic change, we’ve got to get our hands dirty, we’ve got to do the work. At the end of the day, this has got to be bigger than 2020.’”
