Wrapping up #WHM2023 at Young Moore
Women’s History Month was particularly significant this year at Young Moore as we celebrated with our first female Managing Partner, Dawn M. Dillon, at the helm. In addition, another female partner, Shannon S. Frankel, was recently elected to serve on the firm’s practice management committee which is 40% women. And that’s not all. In January of this year, Angela F. Craddock was named to Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Appellate Hall of Fame and, shortly thereafter, Dana H. Hoffman was named to North Carolina Lawyers Weekly Power List for Personal Injury. We are also proud to mention that 33% of attorneys and 60% of employees at Young Moore are women! Our women are leaders, problem solvers, creators, and protectors and, with them, come strength, resiliency, and empathy.
With lots to celebrate and feeling inspired, we invited the women of Young Moore to tell us about their source of inspiration. Here is what we learned.
#WHM Spotlight on Inspiration

Deneen shared that she is inspired by many but emphasized a fascinating achievement by her cousin-n-law Tiffany Booth, the first ever black female bomb tech in the FBI.

As we wrap up our 2023 celebration reflecting on women at Young Moore and around the globe, we will continue to applaud the leadership, bravery, and ingenuity of those who came before us and we pledge to help pave the way for those who come after.
