The awards, which were presented on April 24th at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago in conjunction with InsideCounsel’s 12th Annual SuperConference, honor in-house counsel and law firm partners who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in corporate law. The Pamela L. Carter Award specifically recognizes a woman leader whose unyielding vision, core values and philosophy of using her achievements as inspiration are critical to her roadmap for success.

O’Meara has led large organizations in the federal government, the legal sector and in Fortune 500 companies. Throughout her career -- including roles of general counsel and division president of two multi-billion dollar global public companies, and as a board member of two New York Stock Exchange-listed companies -- she has been an advocate, role model and mentor for women in all walks of life.

“I am so grateful to the many incredible women leaders who I’ve had the pleasure of learning from and working with, and feel humbled and honored by this award,” said O’Meara. “This honor is consistent not only with my own values, but also with those of Pitney Bowes, where diversity and inclusion are longstanding tenets of the company culture.”

Winners were selected by a National Awards Committee, comprising general counsel from leading corporations and partners at top law firms. The committee is co-chaired by Allstate Insurance Company's Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer, Michele Coleman Mayes and InsideCounsel magazine's Editor-in-Chief, Cathleen Flahardy.
