Professor Bettman To Speak To Women in the Workplace

Congregation Agudas Achim and Columbus Hadassah, with support of the Columbus Bar, invite the community to attend “Women in the Workplace: Past, Present and Future,” Sunday, September 7, 11:00am at Congregation Agudas Achim, 2767 E. Broad Street in Bexley.

The event is being held to honor of the memory of Agudas Achim member and Columbus Hadassah Life Member Ruth Freed, a longtime Columbus Bar member who helped pave the way for women in the legal field and everywhere who have struggled for workplace equality.

Guest speaker for the program is the former Judge Marianna Bettman whose topic will be “Putting a Tiny Crack in the Glass Ceiling.” Professor Bettman has taught at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Law since 1999, when she left her judgeship on the First District Court of Appeals. Drawing upon her experience as a practitioner and jurist, she is recognized for her teaching excellence and for her contributions to the legal profession. She is a frequent speaker on tort reform, separation of powers, state constitutional law in Ohio, the Ohio Supreme Court, and the election of judges. She serves as an appeals consultant to lawyers throughout Ohio; and she writes a daily blog, “Legally Speaking Ohio,” as well as a monthly newspaper column, “Legally Speaking,” that appears in the American Israelite and the Cincinnati Herald.

Women in the Workplace committee co-chairs are Janyce Katz and Alexandra Schimmer, Arlene Armstrong, Marilyn Atlas, Rachel Belenker, Laura Einstein, Heather Goodman, Emily Hindin, Merry Lynn Lincove, PJ Maybruck, Sandy Roseman and Bobbie Shkolnik.
