Robinson+Cole’s Jeffrey White Elected to National Manufacturing Board
Attorney Jeffrey White of Connecticut-based law firm Robinson+Cole has been elected to the Women in Manufacturing Association’s national board of directors.
WiM is the only national association dedicated specifically to supporting, promoting, and inspiring women who have chosen a manufacturing career.
White, a partner at Robinson+Cole and chair of its law industry team, is among 11 new leaders elected to the WiM board. His three-year term begins April 1.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this dynamic group of industry leaders and look forward to working together to advance women in manufacturing,” White said.
“It is important, now more than ever, for all of us to ‘lean in’ as we support the next generation of manufacturing leaders across the U.S.A. and the world.”
White is also among seven new CBIA board members and is deeply involved with manufacturing industry issues on national and international levels.
As an attorney, he has represented a cross-section of manufacturing companies, from large global companies to small, family-owned businesses, and has worked with economic development agencies to support direct foreign investment in the U.S.
WiM president Allison Grealis welcomed White and other board members.
“WiM’s board includes outstanding leaders from some of our nation’s most prestigious manufacturing companies.
“Now more than ever, it is important to support and engage the women leaders and their male allies who will lead our industry during this time of economic recovery and into the future.”
In addition to WiM and CBIA, White was appointed to serve on the Connecticut District Export Council by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and last year he received the district council’s Ambassador Award in recognition of his contributions to and leadership of the region’s exporters and manufacturers.
White also created Robinson+Cole’s popular Manufacturing Law Blog, and has been recognized several times for his innovative approach that helped create a series of firsts that have solidified Robinson+Cole as having “one of the nation’s top manufacturing law practices,” as noted by the Indiana Lawyer.
