    Marcum Women’s Forum 2018

    The second annual Marcum Women’s Forum—Strength. Health. Influence.—was held on December 6 at the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco. This year’s lineup included nationally prominent speakers such as Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation; Jeanne Rizzo of the Breast Cancer Prevention Partners; Claudia Fan Munce, Venture Advisor; and Julie Abrams, CEO of How Women Lead.

    Convener of the event was longtime “Betty’s List” and San Francisco Bay Times friend and adviser Nanette Lee Miller, who recently announced her retirement from Marcum. Miller has been a partner at the firm, being part of Marcum’s Assurance Services Group in the San Francisco office. She was the California Healthcare Practice Leader and also the Founder and Co-leader of the Modern Family & LGBT Services Practice Group.

    Miller established that influential LGBT Group in 2012, a full year before the historic overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act by the U.S. Supreme Court. Her astute recognition of the complex and distinct tax and estate planning needs of the LGBT community established Marcum as the national thought leader in this specialty area.

    Miller described her participation in the Marcum Women’s Forum as being her “final act” with the firm. The annual event is geared towards women professionals, and it provides a safe environment for women to share experiences and support each other in their personal and professional pursuits.

    The Women’s Forum is presented by the Marcum Women’s Initiative, which is dedicated to enhancing career opportunities for women at the firm, through national and local programs and activities that motivate, support and encourage forward thinking. For more information:
