This September Erickson Immigration Group hosted their Women in Law event, which highlights the contributions and stories of pivotal women who work in immigration law. This event was led by EIG’s Erickson Immigration Group’s Partner, Hiba Anver. In this conversation, Policy and Advocacy Strategist, Maunica Sthanki joins Hiba to share her story.
The two address navigating the legal industry as a woman of color, and the methods used to advance in a career when faced with challenges:
- How Maunicas father arriving in the US as a refugee has shaped her view and empathy towards what immigration can bring
- The insights she gained working on the Subcommittee of Immigration and Border Security during the Trump Administration.
- In conclusion, what lessons she passes down to young women aspiring to become lawyers
