5th Annual Shirley's Legacy
Barnes & Thornburg LLP invites you to a reception as the firm honors its late partner, Shirley Shideler, and trailblazing women in Indiana. Join us as we honor two deserving women:
- Dr. Kristina Box, State Health Commissioner, Indiana Department of Health
- Connie Lahn, Partner, Barnes & Thornburg
In September 1963, Shirley was offered a position as an associate, and thus became the first female associate at Barnes & Thornburg and at any other major law firm in the state. In 1971, Shirley became the first woman to be named a partner in a large Indiana law firm. She continued to blaze a trail in her work at Barnes & Thornburg and in the legal community when, in 1998, she became the first woman president of the Indiana Bar Foundation. Shirley died in 2003, but has remained an important part of Barnes & Thornburg’s history as a leading Indiana and national firm.For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-261-7922.
