Seriously Driven Banner

Candid conversations, unfiltered insights, and a dose of hard-earned wisdom from influential women, committed to helping other women succeed and lead.

Shawn M. Wright, co-chair of Blank Rome LLP’s Washington, D.C., office and a partner in the Firm’s White Collar Defense & Investigations group, is one of the most revered figures in business, nonprofit, and legal circles. A trailblazing white collar defense litigator, she talks with Marilyn about how her fear of failure pushed her career forward and drove her to be a well-rounded person—always seeking ways to provide value to everyone in her life. Often considered “a pleasant surprise” when she walks into a room, Shawn also shares her views on great mentors, balancing on the seesaw that is life, and paying it all forward.
