The Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association’s KC Counselor magazine recently included insight from Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris (SBH) Managing Member Kimberly Jones in a cover story highlighting local female lawyers in law firm leadership roles. Titled “Breaking the Glass Scales,” the article features profiles of Jones and five other attorneys.
When asked about her career path, Jones provided advice to other women in the industry looking to navigate their own professional path in the legal industry.
“Asking questions and asking for help is not a sign of weakness,” she said in the article. “If you want a role of responsibility, it is not inappropriate to ask for it. If you don’t get it, you get to ask why. We don’t have to apologize to be in the room.”
