At Kramer Levin, we believe in leveling the playing field for women across all professions. In 2021, the inequity of the playing field for men's and women's college basketball was brought to the forefront — unequal dollars spent on marketing, training facilities and team amenities as well as unequal visibility and recognition for the same level of talent and competitive play.

As part of our celebration of Women's History Month and in conjunction with our Women's Initiative, we hosted our first annual Women's NCAA basketball tournament pool, with monetary donations totaling $10,000 made to equity-focused charities selected by the winning participants.

Congratulations to all the winners, including our alum Marc Schwartz, Principal, Taconic Capital who took first place!
