Women’s History Month: Akya Rice



Practice Areas

March 24, 2022

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Robinson Bradshaw is highlighting women from the firm throughout March. Meet litigator Akya Rice.

Describe what you do at Robinson Bradshaw.

I (mostly) help employers navigate complex workforce-related issues.  

What do you most enjoy about your job?

I enjoy being involved in the decision-making process for our clients because there’s an opportunity for strategic guidance and pre-litigation resolution. I also enjoy that my job affords me the opportunity to be involved in community initiatives through organizations like the Mecklenburg County Bar.

What advice would you give a younger version of yourself?

It is okay to make mistakes – little ones and big ones.

Who is a female role model you admire, and why?

I admire the women mentors in my life as a collective. I would not be where I am today without their patience, guidance and investment.

Tell us something about yourself that we wouldn't learn from your website bio.

I love travel photography, and my home is filled with photographs I’ve taken from beautiful places all over the world.
