NINA JOAN KIMBALL is a founding partner in Kimball Brousseau LLP, a boutique employment law firm in Boston where she advises individuals, non-profit organizations, and small businesses in all aspects of employment law issues. As a member of the Women’s Bar Association, Nina co-chaired the Pay Equity Task Force of the WBA’s Legislative Policy Committee from 2014 to 2016. In that role, Nina helped to draft the Equal Pay bill that we will be discussing today, which was passed into law in 2016. This new law amends our state Equal Pay Act and provides important tools to help close the gender pay gap.
In December 2016, Nina was appointed to serve a three-year term as a Commissioner on the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women, whose mission is to enhance opportunities and equality for women in Massachusetts. Nina currently serves as Secretary of the Commission.
Nina’s practice and professional services address many issues that affect women in the workplace. Her practice includes advising women negotiating job offers how to negotiate compensation packages; advising employers and employees about family and medical leave issues; and taking on pregnancy discrimination, wage discrimination and glass ceiling issues, to name a few.
Nina received her B.A. from Yale College and her J.D. from George Washington University, where she was Editor in Chief of The George Washington Law Review. She clerked for Chief Judge Spottswood W. Robinson III of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
