The Astyra ladies attended the last MBL Remarkable Women’s Luncheon of 2018 in December.
They were excited to hear Mrs. Doris Causey speak about her experience as an African-American Legal Aid Attorney and President of the Virginia State Bar. Her main goal is to represent people who feel like they have no other option left. This includes those facing domestic violence, sexual abuse and home foreclosure.
One issue she stresses is inclusivity in the workforce because she believes that you cannot have diversity alone. After campaigning for this, she was able to ensure that every committee in the Virginia State Bar has at least one minority present.
She struggles with the thought of not being able to serve enough people, but reminds herself and us that you are still helping people regardless of the number of people.
