Women Who Wow: Christy Tosh Crider
Christy Tosh Crider is chair of Baker Donelson’s Health Care Litigation Group and the Women’s Initiative, and is a member of the firm’s Board of Directors. Christy concentrates her practice in health care litigation, managing the litigation of numerous health care facilities around the country, as well as serving as outside general counsel.
I was a co-panelist with Christy onwebinar on women in law earlier this year, and was so impressed with everything Baker Donelson has done to promote and advance women lawyers under Christy’s leadership.
For example, during Christy’s tenure as the Women’s Initiative Chair, Baker Donelson has earned numerous recognitions as an exceptional workplace for women, including being named by Seramount (formerly Working Mother Media) to its Best Law Firms for Women list, and being ranked 15th nationally in diversity for women in the 2022 edition of Vault’s “Best Law Firms for Diversity.” Baker Donelson was also recognized by the Chambers Women in Law Awards: USA 2018 as a finalist in the category of Outstanding Firm in Advancing Gender Diversity and Inclusion.
Christy has overseen numerous key initiatives at Baker Donelson, including the adoption of an industry-leading parental leave policy; implementation of a firm-wide mentoring program for women; creating a program that awards business development grants to women attorneys; and a training program designed to help women attorneys achieve equity shareholder status. Christy was named a 2018 recipient of the A Great Place to Work® For All Leadership Award by FORTUNE magazine.
