According to a poll by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the modern working woman faces a number of significant issues and concerns, from maintaining a healthy work-life balance to the gender pay gap. An attorney from Denver, Colorado, Kelly Hyman takes a closer look at the poll’s findings. “The list of concerns, some of which are critical, highlighted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation poll affect women in all aspects of business,” suggests Hyman, “in many, if not all, of the leading economies in today’s developed world.”
A registered charity in the United States and the United Kingdom, the Thomson Reuters Foundation is the London-based charitable arm of Thomson Reuters, a Canadian global information and news network. The Rockefeller Foundation, meanwhile, is a private foundation based in New York City, established by the six-generation Rockefeller family, and whose mission is to improve the well-being of humanity around the world. “All of the data collected,” Hyman points out, “came from so-called ‘advanced economies,’ all of which are in the G20.”
A graduate of UCLA and the University of Florida College of Law, Kelly Hyman is an attorney at Franklin D. Azar & Associates focused on class actions and mass tort litigation. A staunch advocate for women’s rights whose other interests include the law, current events, social justice, voting rights, female empowerment, and mindfulness, she is happily married to federal judge Paul G. Hyman, Jr.
