A San Diego attorney was recognized this week for her commitment to helping women attain leadership positions in government, law and busienss.
AnneElise Goetz, a partner at Higgs Fletcher & Mack, was awarded the “Forward under 40” award from the Wisconsin Alumni Association.
Eight University of Wisconsin-Madison alumni from a pool of undergraduate and graduate students under the age of 40 were honored for living the Wisconsin Idea: the principle that the UW should have a positive impact in Wisconsin and around the world.
Goetz is a regular legal analyst on HLN and FOX networks and started her own legal education podcast, Your Life and the Law, that focuses on law in everyday life.
In 2012, Goetz was appointed Chair of the Leadership Development Committee for Lawyers Club and served for two years. In that capacity, she organized “Pipeline to Leadership,” a nuts and bolts program that provided women with hands-on tools to get appointed to boards and commission in the public, private and non-profit sectors. The idea was that those boards could serve as catalysts for even more prominent positions for women and also allow for valuable networking opportunities.
Goetz has also been involved in Run Women Run and helped organize its political bootcamp, a full-day event teaching women how to build a campaign and run for office.
“I’m incredibly honored to receive the recognition from the University of Wisconsin. To be one of eight individuals from all alums under 40 is really special,” Goetz said. “I always strive to make an impact and I’ve truly enjoyed using my passion for law to help others reach their goals.”
