Erika Royal, Holland & Knight
What are you involved with at United Way of Broward County and why?
I am primarily involved in providing employment law-related training to United Way of Broward County employees and also providing advice and counsel with respect to Human Resources and Employment Law-related issues to United Way of Broward County. I am so happy to be able to take this area of expertise that I love and that I have worked in for over twenty years and provide valuable assistance to United Way of Broward County on a pro bono basis as part of my and my firm’s commitment to the community.
What is your favorite thing about being a woman?
My favorite thing about being a woman is being a mother. I have two daughters and a son and, it sounds cliché, but motherhood changed my life. It is very important to me to raise children who are well-rounded and happy, but who are also good people with a strong sense of self and good values. Every day, I learn so much from them, while also striving to be an example to them of what is possible.
