Erika’s insights as woman on a journey to becoming a judge – owning her own firm, working in corporate, and tackling motherhood – prove this over and over. Key moments:Hanging up her own shingle after the 2008 recession (8:40)Conflicts for women developing career and family in America (10:13)Asking for what you want (15:05)What Erika Orr wants to see changed in law (19:06) MEMORABLE QUOTES“Part of [bridging the pay gap] is making sure women know they can make the ask, don’t be afraid to make the ask…. Even as a child I was empowered to speak my piece.”“At some point [we’re going to have to] asses what our value system is around the working family…. There’s a cost factor to it but cost really is associated with whatever your value system is. It’s not an expensive proposition if certain things are important to you. We as a country are going to have to make a determination about what it is we want.”“We need more people to dive deep and not be afraid to ask the questions of themselves.”CONNECT WITH ERIKA ORRErika Orr is currently a full circuit Cook County judge where she is seated in the Domestic Violence Division.
