Foley Hoag attorney Tafadzwa Pasipanodya will be a featured speaker for the annual Women's Information Network (WIN) Women Opening Doors for Women (WODW) event, taking place at the National Education Association in Washington, DC on Monday, June 20 2016. This year’s event is themed “Lifting As We Climb: United to Win.”

Pasipanodya, along with fellow speaker global solutions consultant Cleve Mesidor of the Raben Group, will lead one of over 20 discussions taking place simultaneously throughout the D.C. area. Their interactive session, “The Global Color Line: A Candid Conversation about the Intersections of Race, Gender, and Class on the Pathway to an International Career,” will focus on how race, gender and class might impact personal experiences in the global market, economics, politics, law, and work/life balance.

As a member of Foley Hoag’s International Litigation and Arbitration practice, Pasipanodya represents sovereign States in contentious and advisory matters concerning international law. Her practice is focused on advising States in investor-State arbitrations and State-to-State disputes concerning mineral resources, environmental harm, territorial and maritime claims, as well as human rights.

Founded in 1989 on the premise of women helping women climb the ladder of success, WIN provides a forum for advancement, mentoring and leadership opportunities for young, Democratic women. Its WODW programming offers members a unique opportunity to learn from and network with accomplished, up-and-coming women.
