In July, the SOM Women's Initiative (SOMWI) hosted its annual summer outing in New York. Employees from various studios came together at The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers to mingle with colleagues and to celebrate recent accomplishments, including the launch of SOMWI's publication, FORUM. Distributed to staff throughout the firm, FORUM focuses on the people, projects, methods, and practices of women both within and outside SOM. Select stories will be spotlighted on SOM.com.
SOMWI was established in 2011 to cultivate and promote the continued development and success of women at SOM and beyond. The group aims to encourage a sense of community and professional support within the firm through various mentoring programs, workshops, internships, and internal networks.
