Two from Waller up for women-in-business awards

Two women from Waller Lansden are finalists in the 2009 edition of the Stevie Awards for Women in Business. Also up for two awards is Marcie Allen of event marketing firm MAC Presents. Here are some details on the work Owen (pictured here at left) and Walker have done.
Carol Owen, finalist in the "Mentor of the Year" category, developed and launched the national organization "Women's Roundtable" from Waller Lansden's headquarters in Nashville, after noticing the low female representation in the field of law. This unprecedented nationwide referral and support network for attorneys provides female colleagues with a platform for new business development, referrals, mentorship and a general support system. Teresa Walker, finalist in the "Best Executive - Service Business - up to 2,500 employees" category, played a pivotal role in helping Waller Lansden remain stable and even grow during the recent economic decline. In 2008, she oversaw the development of a strategic plan that focused on increasing Waller Lansden's national recognition and raising the profile of its successful healthcare practice. This plan also included a strategy to integrate critical technology that would monitor and improve the firm's financial management.
