June's Speaker... 

Michelle Siri

Executive Director, The Women's Law Center of Maryland

Michelle Daugherty Siri, Esq. is the Executive Director of the Women’s Law Center of Maryland (“WLC”), a statewide nonprofit dedicated to ensuring the physical safety, economic security, and bodily autonomy of women across Maryland. After receiving her B.A. in Religious Studies from the College of William & Mary, Ms. Siri moved to Baltimore in 1999 and obtained her J.D., with honors, from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Admitted to practice law in Maryland and the District of Columbia and before the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and the U.S. Circuit Court for the Fourth Circuit, she began her legal career as a law clerk in the Baltimore City Circuit Court. After practicing in the private sector for five years in the areas of toxic tort defense and transportation law, and the public sector for seven years advising the Department of Juvenile Services in the areas of labor and employment law as an Assistant Attorney General, she transitioned out of the daily practice of law, and into her current position at the WLC in January 2015. This position allows her the unique opportunity to blend her passion to achieve systemic change on behalf of women with her connections and experience within the legal community.  

In addition to her professional career, Ms. Siri spends much of her free time supporting the community through a variety of local organizations. She served on the Board of Directors of Planned Parenthood of Maryland from 2010 to 2016, including serving as the Chair of the Board from 2014 through 2016. She is a Fellow of both the prestigious Public Policy Conflict Resolution Fellowship Program and the Maryland Bar Foundation, a member of her Law School Alumni Board, and Treasurer of the Maryland Legislative Agenda for Women. She currently serves as the Vice Chair of the Baltimore County Bar Association’s Pro Bono Committee. She was awarded The Daily Record’s 2016 Leadership in Law - Generation JD award, was twice named one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women by the Daily Record, and was honored on their VIP List in 2013 and their Leading Women list in 2012. She currently lives in Cockeysville with her husband and two sons. 

Michelle is a 2017 Nonprofit Executive Leadership Academy Fellow with the SISGI Group
