Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle has been selected by the Junior League of Miami as one of their 2018 Women Who Make a Difference. The award recognizes outstanding women who exemplify the League’s mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities.

Founded in 1926, the Junior League of Miami is an organization of over 800 strong and determined women, united by a common interest in building a better community and cultivating female civic leaders. Their mission is to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

“To be honored by the Junior League of Miami is a very special recognition for me,” said State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. “It pleases me to be recognized for my efforts to advance opportunities for women. The legal profession has not always been receptive to expanding opportunities for women, particularly minority women. I am proud that my efforts to change that mindset and help mentor women lawyers into positions of leadership has been recognized and appreciated.”

The League recognized State Attorney Fernandez Rundle during the group’s 18th Annual Women Who Make A Difference Luncheon on Friday, March 8, 2019, in the Bloom Ballroom at Jungle Island, 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, in Miami.
