Laurie N. Robinson

Laurie N. Robinson has been described as a “visionary” whether it is in reference to her role as founder and CEO of Corporate Counsel Women of Color or her internal efforts at CBS. A practicing employment lawyer in CBS Broadcasting’s legal department, Ms. Robinson recently assumed additional responsibilities as Director of Training and Development at CBS. Ms. Robinson established Corporate Counsel Women of Color (CCWC) to provide a critical support network to in-house women attorneys of color and to promote the advancement of women of color in the legal profession and workplace. Since 2004, Ms. Robinson has grown the organization to a membership roster of over 1,700 women attorneys of color who work in-house for Fortune 1000 companies, Forbes 2000 companies, not-for-profit corporations, and other entities in the United States and abroad. Displaying an entrepreneurial spirit, Ms. Robinson built CCWC by starting small and working with available resources and leveraging additional resources to fuel organic growth in a “virtuous circle.”
