Reding, Mary

Mary Reding ’99 is featured in a joint-agency report announced by First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ’60, J.D. ’63 on the employment challenges facing military spouses who work in licensed professions.

In her speech, the First Lady called on professional organizations to follow the lead of the American Bar Association in supporting military spouse licensing initiatives.
 
The Military Spouse JD Network is featured in the report as the leading national organization, formed by two military spouses Mary Reding and Hon. Erin Wirth, focused on implementing a solution to the licensing problems faced by military spouses in the legal profession. MSJDN is working closely with state bar associations and supreme courts to accommodate the unique challenges faced by military spouse attorneys.
 
The Department of Defense and the Department of Treasury issued the report, Supporting our Military Families: Best Practices for Streamlining Occupational Licensing Across State Lines.
 
The report highlights the difficulty of “licensing portability” for military spouses who work as teachers, nurses, social workers, lawyers, and in many other professions requiring state occupational licenses. The report suggests ways that state-licensing bodies can reduce these barriers for military spouses moving across state lines. Eleven states already have enacted legislation to support portability for military spouses with occupational licenses.
The report concludes that spouse employment plays a key role in the financial and personal well being of military families. Spouse satisfaction with the military lifestyle is an important component of retention of service members. The report encourages all states to eliminate the undue burden of occupational licensing requirements in all professions in recognition of the great sacrifices military spouses make for the country.
The full speech is available at: www.whitehouse.gov/photos-and-video/video/2012/02/15/supporting-military-spouse-employment. ABA mention is at minute 20.
 
The report, with MSJDN mention on page 19, is available at: www.defense.gov/home/pdf/Occupational_Licensing_and_Military_Spouses_Report_vFINAL.PDF.

Pasternack, Joanne

Joanne Pasternack J.D. ’99 was part of the Women in Sports Symposium, sponsored jointly by the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the San Francisco 49ers, in November. An all-star panel of women described what it’s like to have a career in the professional sports industry.

As a youngster, Joanne Pasternack thought she knew exactly what she wanted to be when she grew up—first an Olympic figure skater and then a pediatrician. Instead, she has ended up in a totally different realm—professional football, where she works as the director of community relations and philanthropy for the San Francisco 49ers, helping to raise millions for charity.
 

Several of the panelists came to the sports industry through circuitous routes. Before assuming her current role with the 49ers in 2008, Pasternack worked as a senior analyst with the City of Mountain View. Armed with a law degree from Santa Clara University, she helped the mayor and other city officials write speeches and analyze legislation. “It was a very comfortable job,” she said, but it wasn’t exciting.
 

She had grown up as a competitive ice skater and did a stint as manager of international corporate relations for the Special Olympics, so Pasternack decided to go for the 49ers” position because of her zest for community relations and passion for sports.

As part of her duties, Pasternack arranges for players, former players, team owners, and 49ers employees to participate in service projects, such as building playgrounds in underserved communities or heading to Ronald McDonald House to play board games with young patients. “That’s the really fun part of the job,” she said.

When searching for prospective college interns, Pasternak doesn’t focus on students’ grade point averages. Instead, she’s impressed by candidates who have played on a sports team or taken a leadership role in a campus club or sorority.

"I’m looking for somebody who’s able to come in and take a leadership role, but who also understands how to be part of a team,” said Pasternak. “That’s far more important to me than what they majored in.”
