CLEO Edge Podcast Ep.13 – CLEO Chief Operating Officer, Leigh Allen II, Interview with Goulston & Storrs Real Estate Attorney Jennifer Jones

Want to hear more about the intersection of gender and law, as well as the merits of “work/life balance?” Then check out the newest episode of The CLEO EDGE Podcast, featuring trailblazing attorney, Jennifer Jones, a DC-based partner with Goulston & Storrs.

Attorney Jones, a longtime champion of DEI in the legal profession, speaks to the important role her father’s work in commercial real estate played in “igniting” her passion for this complex practice area. After completing a master’s program, she ultimately found a way to pair her love of real estate with her curiosity and intrigue of the law.

In this episode, Jones talks with CLEO’s COO, Leigh Allen II, about her long, winding journey in the profession via the lens of generational differences and constant pursuit of gender parity. She discusses how she aims to help create space for other women and people of color to share their voices and succeed in the field the way she has been able to. Tune in to learn more about her admirable professional accomplishments and the tangible impact her advocacy efforts have had within the organizations she has been affiliated with throughout her career.

Episode 13 is now available on Apple, Spotify, and YouTube.
