Walking the Tightrope: The Challenges of Inclusivity

Marina Park is the former managing partner of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP who now serves as the CEO of Girl Scouts of Northern California. Ms. Park spent 25 years in private practice and became one of the first women (together with Pillsbury’s Chair, Mary Cranston) to lead one of the country’s 100 largest law firms. During her 8 years as managing partner, Ms. Park negotiated and implemented two of the largest law firm mergers in the United States and established a diversity program that earned top rankings from Working Mother. In 2007, Ms. Park set aside the practice of law for a new journey as CEO of the Girl Scouts of Northern California. The San Francisco Business Times has honored her 5 times with the Most Influential Women in Business Award and in 2015 recognized her as Most Admired CEO.
