Excellence in Mentorship Award

Excellence in Mentorship 2021

The Stradley Ronon Excellence in Mentorship Award is given annually to two individuals – one attorney and one business professional or paralegal – who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to outstanding mentoring and have made an appreciable difference in the lives of others at the firm. Both winners receive a trophy and a monetary prize of $5,000. The award is designed to honor and recognize mentors who:

  • act as leaders and trusted advisers
  • support others in relationship building and serve as a career and professional growth advocate
  • take the time to listen and understand the experiences, aspirations and concerns of others
  • create formal and informal mentorship opportunities at any stage of a professional career
  • offer flexible, empathetic and respectful assistance in helping others develop their own solutions

The award was designed and implemented by the firm’s Talent Development & Mentorship Committee, which was created to draw together a variety of different perspectives and experiences from across the firm to help drive Stradley Ronon’s talent development strategy for lawyers and business professionals.

Partner Ellen Rogoff and Legal Administrative Assistant Helene Miskell were the firm’s inaugural Excellence in Mentorship Award honorees. Please visit the firm's press release for more about Ellen and Helene’s mentorship impact.
