Sherene Jodrey, Senior Counsel at The Boeing Company, was selected as the 2019 recipient of The Chicago Bar Foundation’s Exelon Outstanding Corporate Counsel Award. As a long-time volunteer with the National Immigrant Justice Center, Jodrey has championed the rights of some of the most vulnerable populations in the world, including asylum seekers fleeing abuse and persecution in their home countries. Jodrey, while in-house at Aon, launched Aon’s Global Pro Bono Initiative, partnering with legal aid organizations throughout Chicago to establish a robust pro bono program which provided new opportunities and support for in-house attorneys. Jodrey also forged a relationship with Equip for Equality, recruiting in-house attorneys to help staff the organization’s Special Education Helpline. Jodrey’s work has inspired many other attorneys and helped to build new in-house pro bono programs.
