Gibbons’ Sostowski inducted as president of NAWL

Gibbons P.C. announced Friday that Kristin D. Sostowski, a director in the firm’s Employment & Labor Law Department, was inducted as president of the National Association of Women Lawyers.

NAWL appointed Sostowski at its Annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon, held Thursday at the Grand Hyatt New York.

Sostowski has been active in NAWL for more than a decade. As president, she will help develop and support research and programming that address the organization’s mission of advancing both women in the legal field and women’s rights under the law.

“As NAWL’s founders have taught us, we can truly advance in this profession only when we achieve broader equality, and we must not rest until we do,” Sostowski said in her induction speech.

“Given her longstanding commitment to the promotion of women in the profession, Kristin has already had an incredible, positive impact on the legal community at large,” Patrick C. Dunican Jr., chairman and managing director of Gibbons, said. “In her new, well-earned leadership position with NAWL, she will no doubt help the organization, its members, and women attorneys nationwide to achieve new heights.”

In addition to NAWL, Sostowski has served as a trustee of the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association since 2008. At Gibbons, she practices employment litigation and counseling, representing New Jersey and national employers in a variety of industries.
