IWIRC is the premier international networking and professional growth organization for women in the restructuring and insolvency industries.

Semi-finalists are chosen from IWIRC networks around the world, and include attorneys, bankers, turnaround advisors, claims and noticing agents, and other restructuring industry consultants and professionals.

Colwell has been an IWIRC member since 2011 and currently serves as co-chair of the New England Network, where she strives to increase the reach of the network and the accessibility of events to women insolvency professionals in the region and the value of membership for IWIRC’s existing members.

Semi-finalists will attend IWIRC’s 25th Annual Fall Conference in San Antonio, Texas, on October 28, where the Rising Star Award winner will be announced.
