Christy Crider, a shareholder in Baker Donelson’s Nashville office, takes over this week as head of the company’s firmwide Women’s Initiative. One of Crider’s chief tasks in her new role, which comes straight from CEO Ben Adams, is to improve the firm’s retention of top-tier female lawyers. In an interview with the Tennessean, Crider talks about why offering a certain perk to men can actually help support female attorneys, and how she plans to spread the principles of Baker Donelson’s Women’s Initiative across Nashville’s health care community.
