Hinshaw Partner Ellen Silverman Advocates for Promoting Diverse Talent in Collector Magazine Story

January 16, 2019

Hinshaw partner Ellen Silverman, chair of the firm's consumer financial services practice, was profiled in the January edition of Collector Magazine, in an article titled "ACA International members share their New Year's Resolutions."

Ellen used the opportunity to advocate for the advancement of leadership opportunities for women and diverse talent—in law firms and the collection industry.

"The lack of leadership roles for women and diverse attorneys in law firms (and the collection industry as a whole) continues to be a challenge," said Silverman. "My resolution for 2019 is to keep pushing to promote diverse talent and women into leadership roles—and to challenge my colleagues to do the same!"
