Taruna Garg Named 2009 Heroine
The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women has announced its 100 Unsung Heroines of 2009. Selected from nearly 400 nominations, the MCSW will recognize Taruna Garg, associate in the Boston office of Murtha Cullina LLP, as the 2009 Heroine for Brookline, Massachusetts.
“Our Unsung Heroines are women who don’t make the news, but make the difference,” said Kira Dunn, MCSW Executive Director. “They are women who use their time and talent to show us the meaning of the saying ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’.”
Women from cities and towns across the Commonwealth will be recognized for the outstanding contributions to their organizations and communities in a ceremony on Wednesday, May 13, 2008 from 1-4pm at the State House in Boston.
"I am honored to share this award with so many extraordinary women,” said Ms. Garg. “With our busy lives, we sometimes overlook the many simple ways in which we can make a significant impact within our community. I applaud all the 'heroines' and 'heroes' who donate their time and energy towards giving back to their community without expecting anything in return."
Ms. Garg received her both her B.A. cum laude and J.D. from Boston University. She is a member of American, Massachusetts and New York Bar Associations and Commercial Law League of America. She represents clients in the areas of bankruptcy, business litigation and creditors' rights.
The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women is an independent state agency that was legislatively created in 1998 to advance women of the Commonwealth to full equality in all areas of life and to promote their rights and opportunities. The MCSW provides a permanent, effective voice for the
women of Massachusetts.
