(DALLAS) – February 21, 2020 – Carolyn Lam, Kynect’s Sr. VP and General Counsel, has been named one of Ms. JD Honors award recipients. Recognized for her commitment and passion for her work, Carolyn was selected as the “2020 Woman of Inspiration.”
After being nominated by nine of her mentees from across the nation, Carolyn will accept her award on March 12, 2020 in Chicago, IL. “She has an uncanny gift for seeing others, and for those who have been used to being invisible, being seen is life-changing.” said Meyling Ly Ortiz, Managing Counsel for Toyota. “What sets her apart as a woman of inspiration is that she not only inspires all of us to be better, but more importantly, to see others and bring them up with us, with her. That is a rare air, worthy of this nomination. We see her, and want the world to see her too.”
Carolyn has been practicing law since the fall of 2006, and joined Kynect in late 2016 as the Associate General Counsel and VP. She now serves as Kynect’s General Counsel, leading the Legal, Human Resources, and Compliance teams. Carolyn implements and manages initiatives that avoid risk, but empower Kynect’s business and Associates to grow. In addition to her experience as a strategic business and legal advisor, Carolyn has expertise in compliance, litigation, risk management, and corporate governance. Outside of the office, she serves on the boards of the National Employment Law Council and the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter.
“This award has been the most beautiful surprise,” said Carolyn Lam. “The fact that these ladies took the time to highlight their impact as a shared experience is so humbling. And just think – this is the environment we create at Kynect. People are building relationships and supporting one another every day, even if we don’t always see it firsthand. Such a great reminder of our corporate ‘why.’”
