Annual Women's Forum New York Tea
On April 25th, Sedgwick hosted its annual New York Women's Forum Tea. This afternoon tea is an elegant occasion for our valued clients, contacts and other professional women from law and business to socialize and strengthen professional ties with one another and with Sedgwick's women attorneys.
This year's speaker was Eleanor Clift, renowned journalist and author. Eleanor Clift is currently a contributing editor at Newsweek/The Daily Beast and a regular panelist on the McLaughlin Group. Ms. Clift has been a White House correspondent for both Newsweek and the Los Angeles Times, and in her career has covered every election since 1976.
