Leslie Spencer '98
Partner, Ropes & Gray
Leslie Spencer ’98, litigation partner at Ropes & Gray, was the recipient of this year’s Woman of Distinction Award from the Women of Color Collective (WoCC). Spencer accepted the award at the annual WoCC Alumnae Reception, where she spoke to the gathered students and alumnae about making a career and engaging in social change.
Spencer urged her audience to consider social change through the lens of what she termed “social justice feminism.
“Feminism doesn’t focus only on women’s issues,” she said, but rather, “all the issues of social justice that are important to us.”
