Kramer Levin Hosts Evening With Academy Award Winner Goldie Hawn

NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP hosted an evening with Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn, organized by the firm's Women's Initiative as part of its ongoing commitment to create opportunities and connections for women inside and outside the firm.  Addressing an audience of women executives from the nation's leading corporate and financial services companies, as well as Kramer Levin's women lawyers, Ms. Hawn shared how she defied stereotypes, built a successful career and fully integrated it with a personal journey of learning and self-improvement that led to her educational and philanthropic efforts to help children across the globe.  The group gathered for cocktails, taking in panoramic views of the New York skyline at midtown's Press Lounge, and participated in a lively Q&A with Ms. Hawn afterward.

Jennifer L. Rochon, a litigation partner on Kramer Levin's Executive Committee and Chair of its Women's Initiative Committee, said, "I am thrilled to be a part of this gathering of women who excel at the top of their professions.  Goldie's experience as a successful actress, director, author and founder of a critical and influential foundation, all while balancing a fulfilling family life, teaches all of us that there is no limit to how high we should – and can – reach."

Ms. Hawn discussed her path to success, both professionally and personally.  In addition to her work as an actress starring in over 30 films, Ms. Hawn is a director, producer, educator, entrepreneur, mother, grandmother, and two-time best-selling author.  She is also the founder of The Hawn Foundation, a non-profit organization she began in 2003 dedicated to improving the overall state of mental health and wellness for children through social and emotional learning.  In conjunction with top neuroscientists, psychologists, educators and children's advocates, The Hawn Foundation developed the MindUP® curriculum, a brain-centric lesson plan to increase focus and concentration, build optimism and resiliency, and improve academic performance, stress reduction and overall happiness.  The MindUP® curriculum is published by Scholastic.  It is currently operating across five continents, and is growing exponentially every day.
