Jen Rubin Recognized Among 50 Women To Watch By Corporate Counsel Business Journal

SAN DIEGO – Corporate Counsel Business Journal (CCBJ) has named Mintz Member Jen Rubin to its list of 50 Women to Watch. The inaugural list “recognizes women who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities, business acumen and a commitment to mentorship in their respective communities.”

The CCBJ selection committee chose the final 50 honorees from a pool of nearly 500 attorney nominees in banking, technology, finance, energy and industrials. Among those 50 women to watch include General Counsels from Verizon, Mastercard, Prudential Financial, Puget Sound Energy and Toyota, among others.

Notably, they are women who drive change; support professional development; influence regulatory matters; contribute to diverse talent recruitment and retention; involvement in corporate social responsibility or environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives; make an effort to enhance diversity in the C-suite and boards of directors; provide ally or mentorship, and play a role in driving business success.

“Being included in this group of amazing women is an achievement in and of itself,” Ms. Rubin said. “I credit a good part of my professional accomplishments to the commitment that Mintz has undertaken to level the playing field to create success for all of its lawyers and I am grateful to benefit from that mindset.”

Ms. Rubin also established and co-chairs the firm’s ESG practice which now encompasses more than 75 professionals across Mintz’s offices. In this role, she advises boards of directors on diversity and equity issues as they pertain to corporate governance.

Ms. Rubin is a nationally published author and, last year alone, published more than 25 articles relating to employment topics. She is frequently called upon by national media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal and Reuters to comment on important employment developments.
