Lisa Anderson, Founder, Staff Attorney, and Executive Director
Although AWE officially came into being in 2012, establishing the organization has been Lisa’s life mission for much longer. Over a decade ago, her personal experience with sexual harassment and an obstacle-ridden complaint process opened her eyes both to the realities of sex discrimination and to the profound difference legal advocacy can make in the lives of individuals and in larger social movements. As a result, Lisa decided to switch career paths and help other women as an attorney. Before law school, Lisa served as an AmeriCorps*VISTA with a crime victim services organization in Great Falls, Montana.
