Monica worked at ALM (nee American Lawyer Media for 30 years - first as a senior editor at The Recorder in San Francisco, where she covered the organized bar. In 1998, she moved to New York to be the editor-in-chief of Law Technology News (now Legaltech News). She retired from ALM in 2015. 


What Monica's professional profile doesn't show, however is the level of influence she's had in shaping the careers of many people in leadership positions today. So much so that in 2014, the Monica Bay STEM Leadership committee, and annual Monica Bay STEM Leadership award was established. 


Monica remains one of my mentors, a friend, and inspiration. It was a true privilege interviewing her for this piece.  Get ready to laugh as we dive in and get to know Monica Bay.
