Anna Maiuri Named a “Woman Worth Watching” by Profiles in Diversity JournalJune 23, 2020
The 19th Annual Women Worth Watching leadership issue recognizes dynamic professional women who are using their talents and influence to change our workplaces and our world. Nominated by their employers or colleagues, these accomplished executives are from corporate organizations, world-class educational institutions, the armed forces, and nonprofit groups. Ms. Maiuri is the third Dickinson Wright attorney to receive this recognition in the past several years. The 2020 Women Worth Watching edition of Profiles in Diversity Journal will be available to the public in August.
Ms. Maiuri is Co-Chair of Dickinson Wright’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. When she joined the Firm seven years ago, Ms. Maiuri was asked to revamp the Firm’s Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) efforts. She was instrumental in making the Committee much more active in firm policymaking, and establishing and advancing affinity groups in the Firm to address the nuances and challenges faced by minorities and/or parents in the big law firm environment. Another of her initiatives resulted in a gender-neutral parental leave policy with substantially enhanced benefits for both attorneys and staff.
“Anna Maiuri is highly deserving of this recognition,” said Michael Hammer, Dickinson Wright’s CEO. “She has brought great leadership, and tireless energy and enthusiasm to our diversity and inclusion efforts, and has been instrumental in helping us adopt several progressive policies and programs to advance these important goals, both within the firm, and in the communities that we serve.”
Ms. Maiuri is also a nationally recognized leader in the field of Environmental Law. Ms. Maiuri has received many awards through the years but most notably in 2015, she was honored with the National Law Journal’s 2015 Energy and Environmental Trailblazers Award. She was named as a Lawyer of the Year for Environmental Law by Best Lawyers in America for 2012, 2016, 2018 and 2020. She also has been recognized as a notable practitioner and leader in the law by Michigan Lawyers Weekly, Michigan Super Lawyers, and DBusiness Magazine. Ms. Maiuri received her B.A. from Wayne State University and her J.D. from Wayne State University Law School.
