Profiles in Diversity Journal Names Cathy Clarkin a Woman Worth Watching

September 30, 2021

Cathy Clarkin, co-head of S&C’s Capital Markets Group, was one of the recipients of Profiles in Diversity Journal’s 20th annual Women Worth Watching Awards, an annual recognition of women who demonstrate talent, courage, persistence, commitment and generosity.
 
In her time as an attorney, Cathy has learned to encourage young female lawyers to speak up. “The conventional wisdom that tells young women to be more aggressive did not work for me,” Cathy says. “Being comfortable led me to being more confident, more earnest, and frankly, more effective. Over time, I recognized that the importance of speaking up extended well beyond my substantive contributions as a lawyer, and that I could use my voice to advocate for myself and others. Ultimately, for me, this has been key to succeeding as a lawyer and as a leader.”
 
Cathy started as a summer associate with S&C in 1994 and has worked at the DC, London and New York offices. Read more here.
