Pamela Bresnahan, a partner in the Vorys Washington, D.C. office, was recently profiled American Bar Association’s (ABA) Gender Equity Task Force website. Bresnahan serves on the task force’s Women to Women Business Networking Working Group, where she is working to develop an organized network of female business leaders, including female CEOs, where female attorneys can further their business and develop/retain client relationships, ultimately leading to better positions within law firms.
The profile on Bresnahan highlighted her background and her hard work, stating:
“Pamela Bresnahan first developed an interest in the law during her senior year in college. As a history major, she had a passion for political and economic history. She planned on continuing her studies in history in graduate school, until a constitutional history professor pointed out that her inquisitive style would fare much better in law school as Bresnahan was not one to sit back and simply observe. Her zealous approach to her studies provided a skill set that paved the way for a successful career.
Being among some of the first women in the profession, Bresnahan didn’t wait for doors to open for her. Knowing that she wanted to be in charge of her own work, she focused on a select area of law few others had knowledge about. In order to survive in the profession and to gain business relationships, she developed an interest in leadership. Within her first decade of practice, she was the Chair of the Maryland State Bar Young Lawyers Section, served as a District Representative to the ABA Young Lawyers Division, and was the President of the Women’s Bar Association of Maryland.”
