What hasn’t kept Kathleen Wu busy since her feature story in 2011?

Wu moved from vice-chair of the Asian American subcommittee of the United States Tennis Association to chair of the National Diversity and Inclusion Committee from 2012 to 2014, and was then elected to the national Board of Directors in 2015. “Even if I weren’t on the board, I’d still be all about tennis because my son, Grant, is now playing for Harvard’s incredible tennis team,” she says.

Wu still takes any opportunity she can to speak and write about women in the law. She recently started serving as a member of the Bias Interrupters Working Group and received the Louise B. Raggio Award from the State Bar of Texas’ Women and the Law Section in 2015; the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau DFW-area Women’s Award in 2014; and the Women of Color Achievement Award from 100 Black Men of America, Inc., in 2013.

“I am in the happiest spot I have ever been in,” she says. “Really remarkable, actually.”
