Susan B. Anthony Reception

Susan B. Anthony Reception

Each year, the Susan B. Anthony reception is held in February, at which time we pay tribute to an individual who most exemplifies the objectives and goals of the WBA by promoting equality in the legal profession. This year we honored Justice Debra Todd with the 2017 Susan B. Anthony Award on February 21, 2017 at a reception at the William Penn attended by 200 members of the legal community, including members of the federal and state judiciary. Carey Cummings, Chief of Staff to Representative Dan Frankel, announced the citation given by the Pennsylvania House in honor of the event. Justice Donohue, William Pietragallo II, and Shelly Pagac also spoke at the event.

There have not been many women who have served as a Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. In that position, Justice Todd's influence reaches throughout the Nation. She has been a "moving force" in addressing issues of gender, racial and ethnic bias in the court system by advocating for sweeping changes in terms of court policies ranging from internet use, hostile work environment training, and mandatory training for judges on these issues. Justice Todd has been an important and courageous voice for equality, justice and professionalism in the Bench and Bar.


 Annually we accept nominations in October and November. Please take a moment to review a list of our past award recipients.
