IBA Award for trustee earns reunite $5000 donation
reunite´s Chair of Trustees Anne-Marie Hutchinson OBE has received the International Bar Association´s Outstanding International Woman Lawyer award, which brought with it the opportunity to donate $5000 to the charity of her choice.
Anne-Marie accepted the IBA Women Lawyers’ Interest Group Outstanding International Women Lawyer Award at the IBA 4th World Women Lawyers´ Conference in London on 15th April. It was awarded in recognition of a woman lawyer who has achieved professional excellence in her field and influenced other woman to pursue legal careers or opened doors for woman lawyers in a variety of job settings that historically were closed to them or advanced opportunities for woman within a practice, area or segment of the profession.
The award included a donation of $5000 to the charity of Anne-Marie´s choice, and we would like to thank the International Bar Association, Lexis Nexis, and Anne-Marie for choosing reunite to receive this generous gift. The money will be used to support the services reunite provides to parents, families and guardians dealing with international abduction, contact and relocation issues.
