Dr Olivarius receives YaleWomen Lifetime Achievement Award

More than 200 Yale alumni, family, and friends gathered Thursday 7th March at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., for the YaleWomen Excellence Awards, at which Dr Ann Olivarius, Catherine Lhamon, and Anita Hill were given Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Yale Alumni News reported, “The recurring theme was the power of all people to make a difference and to show that gender equity is a critical component of a just society.” Dr Olivarius said during her talk, “We have to judge this as a global issue of huge proportion.”

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
