Meet BB&T’s Women’s Section
BB&T’s women attorneys practice in diverse legal areas, collectively representing over 65 years of experience. Our firm has a history of creating and preserving relationships that foster a community of successful women.
Our women attorneys support and encourage the professional growth of one another through our firm’s mentor program, and by serving in leadership positions within our firm and our local area. We are committed to cultivating leadership among women in our community and providing opportunities for women professionals to connect with one another.
In 2010, the BB&T Women’s Section launched its professional women’s networking series. The Women’s Section plans to host educational events throughout the year allowing professional women to gather together in a relaxing atmosphere to learn more about each other. Our goal is for local professional women to develop lasting relationships.
