"I have learned over the years, if you're not at the table, your voice is not heard," Judge Sconiers told The Buffalo News last January. Recently retired from the New York State Appellate Court, the former justice is passionate about positioning women for leadership in elected office, on boards of directors and in community roles in general. You won't want to miss her candid observations.
